Every limited company must have a company secretary whose function is to ensure that various tasks are undertaken to enable the smooth running of the company.
Hillgate Management can, if requested, arrange an appointment of a sole or joint company secretary in order to ensure that the statutory requirements are complied with thereby relieving the directors of their respective burdens:
Our duties as company secretary are as follows:
The service charge accounting for properties is part of our management service. This includes budgeting, billing, accounts preparation, paying suppliers, credit control and preparation of the end of year accounts and is carried out by our in house accounts team headed by Hayley Putnam. All of our accounts are independently audited by RICS. We can add to this service, for example with the preparation of subsidiary accounts (perhaps for a parallel freehold owning company), PAYE services, operating deposit accounts etc.
We are audited by RICS regulations for holding client monies; and are currently associates of ARMA and look to abide by all their regulations to be accepted as a qualified member of ARMA Q in 2019.
We are very experienced in providing the relevant insurance for your property and look to get the best rates for our clients. Our hands on experience has seen us cover most of the problems that can arise within residential flat blocks and we will always look to resolve issues swiftly, amicably and cost effectively.
We automatically deal with any claims made under our block policy, but can also take a role in this process where we do not arrange a block insurance.
