The DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) recently announced a plan to simplify administrative ‘red tape’ for small businesses. 

This is very welcome news indeed, as plans include simplified application and form filling to Companies House.   As anyone who has had to register with Companies House knows, this can be a rather bewildering and intimidating process. 

For the full report, check out the DTI website at and select Press Articles.


Welcome to Glorified Secretary.  

Looking forward to (dignified) comments from glorified secretaries everywhere – particularly if, like me, you’ve managed to escape the rat race and have gone it alone.

Watch this space for news, reviews, network links and everything else in ‘our world’.

Yours gloriously,
Glorified Secretary.
