Section 278: Particulars of secretaries to be registered: corporate secretaries and firms
516.This section replaces section 290 of the 1985 Act insofar as it applies to secretaries who are not individuals. It sets out the details which must be registered where the secretary of a company is either a body corporate or a firm which is a legal person under the law by which it is governed. The requirements that apply in the case of an EEA company follow the recommendations of the CLR (Final Report, paragraph 11.39).
517.The section also makes provision about the details which must be registered where all the partners in a firm are joint secretaries.
