Director resignation service

You may have already registered a company, and appointed a director, but what about when you need to remove a director from your company? We can handle the entire director resignation process for you. We’ll fill in the required forms and file the paperwork to Companies House on your behalf.

Why choose our director resignation service?

  • We have 100 years of combined experience and vast knowledge of UK company law and Companies House regulations, so we can ensure the resignation of your director is done the right way
  • We will complete all the relevant paperwork and ensure all legal processes are followed, allowing you to sit back and avoid stressful compliance and time-consuming formalities

Can a limited company director be forcefully removed by shareholders?

A director can be forcefully removed as long as they do not hold any shares of the company. Directors are appointed by the members of the company (the shareholders or guarantors) to lawfully manage the daily business activities and finances of your company (providing that they do not hold shares). As a result, these members (shareholders) have the power to remove a director at any time under certain provisions in your company’s articles of association, by ordinary resolution of the company’s members or by a disqualification order from an authorised body.

If you wish to remove a director before the contract date of their term of office, you must ensure you are not breaching any company laws or provisions, as the director could sue you and seek compensation.

We’d always advise to opt for voluntary resignation and offer the director a severance package to ensure the resignation process goes smoothly.

What are the typical reasons for director resignation?

You may wish to terminate a director for a number of reasons:

  • The director has reached the end of their contract
  • They are unable to devote enough time to perform their required duties
  • The director is suffering from poor health and is unable to manage the business from day to day
  • The director has passed away

Either way, you should notify Companies House of a director’s resignation or termination within 14 days from their exit date.

Can you help us with the director appointment process?

Yes, we can also help you appoint a new director the right way. We’ll follow Companies House regulations and file all the relevant paperwork. If necessary, we can also send your confirmation statement — which is an up-to-date record of your company’s directors — to Companies House.

What is included in our price?

  • A resignation letter for the director to sign
  • Board meeting minutes, as required by law
  • Filing the form required with Companies House, as required by law

How does the service work?

  • Click the “Resign a Director from Your Business Now” button
  • Enter the requested information about your director resignation

It’s that simple. We’ll then file the required forms with Companies House and email the paperwork and confirmation within three working days.
