Affordable Company Secretary Services: How We Do It
All our corporate secretaries are certified experts with over 10 years of experience. Their qualification and expertise are valuable, so their core duty is to resolve complicated issues and attend to the specific needs of your business. Whenever you need detailed advice, they have the time and knowledge necessary to focus and suggest a solution. For example, if you need guidance on the company structure, or want to assess the consequences of your decisions, they will be happy to help.
They can do it because robots do the routine company secretary work. They track deadlines automatically, send reminders, and create standard documents. Things like filling in shareholders’ data in regular paperwork take them no time at all and they never make mistakes like humans do. They are online 24/7 and can resolve your task neatly even late at night. They also have access to quickly file your reports with the registration bodies. However, the robots process only the typical tasks and turn to human experts whenever the job gets a bit more challenging. Or simply if you prefer to talk to a human.
This approach helps us keep our corporate secretaryship affordable and efficient. Right after your company secretary appointment at Osome, you get the support of both experienced human experts and diligent robots. This helps us offer the best price for Essential Corporate Secretary. And because we can process paperwork faster, we offer Unlimited Corporate Secretary service, too. We can commit to any amount of tasks you might have at a fixed price, so you won’t have to think about the cost of every additional resolution you need.

What is Company Secretary?
The corporate secretary is an officer every Singapore company must have. Their job is to make sure company paperwork is in order, on time, and in compliance with the law. This critical role requires various certifications and involves a lot of responsibility.
Who can be a Company Secretary? Can I become the Corporate Secretary myself?
If you like. First, you need to have all the qualifications of a Corporate Secretary plus 5 years of experience. Second, you have to be a Singapore citizen, or a permanent resident, or an EntrePass holder. Finally, you can’t be both the only director and the Corporate Secretary.
Is Company Secretary a director?
No, these are two different roles in the company. Your Corporate Secretary does not receive the director status. However, if the same person wants to be both, Singapore law allows it. In this case, there must be other directors — a single director can’t be a Corporate Secretary, too.
Is Company Secretary an employee?
You can hire a Corporate Secretary as your employee or outsource this service. Often a company does not have enough secretarial tasks for a full in-house job. When you entrust this role to Osome, you don’t have to pay a salary and associated taxes. The expense is limited to the package you choose.
What are company secretary duties and functions?
Company secretary duties and functions are to take care of all the necessary documents required by law. For example, issuing company resolutions, managing regulatory filings and maintaining company books. It is their job to process every decision and every change your business goes through and report to ACRA accordingly.
Why outsource corporate secretarial services?
Only really big companies need an in-house corporate secretary – because in a small one the officer simply does not have much to do. Unless there are constant changes to the company’s top management, constitution, business activities, and shareholders, the corporate secretary only is only busy preparing for the Annual General Meeting and filing the Annual Return once a year. If that is your case, you can follow the example of most small and medium-sized companies in Singapore and outsource the secretary.
What documents does a Corporate Secretary prepare?
First, a Corporate Secretary tracks changes in your company and reports to ACRA. Whenever you change directors, auditors, secretaries, shareholders, your share capital or the company name they send a notice. Then there are several registers they have to maintain, like the Register of Company Charges or the Register of Controllers. They are in charge of preparing and recording board minutes and annual general meetings, official correspondence and insurance.

OSOME has been an incredible partner for our Corporate Secretary needs. They're fast, virtually available 24/7, and are also incredibly accommodating to requests on accounting, payroll and general Singapore CorpPass service questions. I highly recommend them, especially if you're a new business owner that's looking to incorporate a new company or an existing one that wants to offload a lot of the administrative, secretarial, and accounting work to a trusted agency.
