Form 45B, also known as “Consent to Act as Corporate Secretary,” is a document used in corporate governance when appointing or nominating an individual to serve as the corporate secretary of a company. The corporate secretary plays a crucial role in maintaining corporate records, ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, and facilitating communication between the company’s board of directors, shareholders, and other stakeholders.

Similar to Form 45 for directors, Form 45B serves as formal acknowledgement and consent by the individual to accept the responsibilities and duties associated with the corporate secretary. The specific details included in Form 45B may vary depending on the jurisdiction and the regulations governing corporate governance.

Typically, Form 45B would include information such as:

1. Name and contact details of the individual consenting to act as corporate secretary.

2. Details of the company appointing the corporate secretary.

3. Confirmation of the individual’s willingness to act as corporate secretary.

4. Signature of the individual consenting to act as corporate secretary.

5. Date of signing the consent form.
