ADD OR REMOVE A DIRECTOR
WHO CAN BE A DIRECTOR OF A COMPANY?
Anyone can be a director of a company and you do not need any particular qualifications or experience.
A person does not need to work for the company or own shares in it.
One of the directors is required to be resident in a member state of the European Economic Area (EEA).
If you don’t not have a director who is based in the European Economic Area (EEA), you need to take out a Section 43 Insurance Bond (last service at the bottom of this page).
PLEASE NOTE: An Undischarged Bankrupt Cannot Become An Officer Of A Company. Section 183 of the Companies Act 1963 provides that if any person, being an undischarged bankrupt acts as an officer or directly or indirectly takes part or is concerned in the promotion, formation or management of any company except with the leave of the High Court, he shall be guilty of an offence, which is prosecutable summarily by ODCE. Undischarged bankrupt means a person who is declared bankrupt by a court within the State or, who has not obtained a certificate of discharge or its equivalent in the relevant jurisdiction.
