What Are The Responsibilities of a Corporate Secretary of a Company in Singapore?

The Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) determines the roles and responsibilities of a company secretary.


There are many duties and responsibilities to be undertaken by a corporate secretary of a company in Singapore such as:

Administrative role

The company secretary handles administrative duties related to any ACRA-related compliance work and ensuring that the company satisfies its corporate obligations like annual return filings and so on.

Another important function of company secretary is the preparation and meeting minutes taking during AGMs and EGMs. The company secretary will also be responsible for any administrative work in the management of company shares, such as the share issues or transfer, and the maintaining of the shareholder register.

Advisory role

A company secretary is expected to provide accurate and updated information regarding compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks in Singapore. As corporate and governmental policies can change from time to time, company secretaries are often relied on to provide first-hand updates to company directors so that the organisation is able to make strategic decisions based on accurate information.
