Today’s company counsels and secretaries are under mounting pressure to deal with increasing corporate compliance and governance and reporting requirements. As a result, they are looking for a partner who can provide a full suite of governance and company secretarial services.
Computershare clients can now take advantage of our Governance Services team in the Netherlands, along with global service capability across 150 jurisdictions. This experienced Dutch team is comprised of former global company secretarial business leaders and subject matter experts such as former lawyers and civil-law notaries.
The Dutch team is used to working on large (international) and multidisciplinary projects and covers a spectrum of services for listed and non-listed companies including annual compliance services, ad hoc services, directors’ training and meeting support (combined with the best technology; e.g. GEMS, CIMS and BoardWorks).
Our standard annual compliance will include the following services: maintain digital statutory registers/minute books, prepare resolutions to approve the annual accounts by directors (if required) and by shareholders. Our annual compliance services can be tailored made. If the company concerns a listed company, Computershare can also support on filings and notifications with the AFM.
Ad hoc services
Computershare can provide ad hoc services such as (not exhaustive): draft resolutions, prepare filing forms and filings to support corporate changes (director/proxy holder changes, change of address), prepare required documents for issuance of power of attorney, distribution/contribution, incorporation/dissolution, branch registration/deregistration, amendment of articles of association, transfer/issuance of shares and (cross-border)merger, demerger and conversion.
