My current secretary refuses to resign. What should I do?
The director(s) of the company can pass a board resolution to remove the current corporate secretary without his/her consent. Once the resolution is passed, you will have to file it to ACRA to officially remove the corporate secretary and appoint a new secretary.
I do not have my minute book. What should I do?
After the resignation of the corporate secretary, the minute book should be returned. However, if the minute book is not returned or documents have been misplaced or lost, it is necessary to patch all the documents back into the new minute book. This patching should be carried out by the new corporate secretary, who is responsible for ensuring that all the documents are correct and present when taking over the minute book of from the previous corporate secretary.
When is a good time to change my company secretary?
There is no particular time to change your company secretary. You can choose to do so at any time of the year. However, we advise that companies should avoid changing company secretaries while nearing any filing related deadlines. This is to avoid incurring any lapses or penalties due to late filing as a result of the transition period between your old and new company secretaries.
Should I use a lawyer or a professional corporate secretary for my incorporation?
It is safer to engage in a professional secretarial service such as Lionsworld to get clear advice and proper preparation of documents to avoid any future conflict in the future.

What is the role of the corporate secretary?
In order to protect all the members of the company, it is the duty of the company secretary to ensure that all the documents are in order and properly kept inside the company’s minute book. At least one original signed copy of the company documents should always be kept inside the company minute book in order to ensure that all company documents remain well-maintained, recognized and legally binding to avoid any possible disputes. At the same time, it is also the corporate secretary’s role to provide clear and proper advice to the members of the company on their queries related to their company structure and filings.
At Lionsworld, we want to ensure that all our clients are well-protected from any possible disputes arising from incomplete or improper documents. Hence, we continue to uphold the standards set by ACRA and the Singapore government to request our clients to sign all their documents originally, and if necessary, have their signatures notarized. Lionsworld also provides free consultations for companies who need advice but are unsure. Our most experienced corporate secretary has been advising businesses since 1982, so you can be assured that all advice is clear, fair and in your favor.
