UK company directors

Company director

What is a director?

The directors of a company are appointed by the shareholders (owners) to manage it on a day-to-day basis. The directors have the authority to run the company as they see fit.

Who can be a director?

A director must not be currently bankrupt or disqualified from acting as a director. They must also be at least 16 years old.

Is there a minimum number of directors required?

No, when you register a company as a Private Limited Company, you need only one director (this person may also be a shareholder/owner).

Does a director have to be a UK resident?

No, a director can be based abroad.

Can a company appoint new directors?

Shareholders can add a new director at any time after the company's incorporation, and you may use our service for this process.

How can I remove a director?

A director may resign from office or be removed by Ordinary Resolution. The rules and legalities must be followed and it is recommended you use our service to ensure you do this in the right way. You must be aware that if the director is also an employee, they may have additional rights as an employee and legal advice should be sought.
