Frequently Asked Questions About Appointing or Removing a Director

How long does it take to appoint or remove a director?

Once all necessary information has been provided to us (don’t worry; we’ll advise you about what we need), your digital documents will be emailed to you within 2-3 working days.

Who can appoint a company director?

Members of a limited company can appoint a company director.

Can shareholders remove a director?

Shareholders may remove a director at any time after a majority vote at a board meeting.

How many directors should a company have?

Every limited company is required by law to have at least one director that is a human being. You can appoint other limited companies to be directors of your limited company, but at least one director must be a person.

Can I remove a director if my company only has one?

No. All companies must have at least one director at any time. If you wish to replace the only director you have, you will need to appoint a new director before removing the current one. Once the new director has been registered with Companies House you can then remove the other director.

Can anyone be appointed as a director?

In the UK, there are a few restrictions about who can be assigned as a director. For example, a director must be over the age of 16 years and not be undischarged bankrupt.

If a person has previously been disqualified from being a director by the courts, that person cannot be made a director of a new company until the date of the bar is lifted. In addition, anyone who has worked as the auditor for your business cannot be assigned the role of director.

Some Articles of Association will specifically name people not permitted to become a director of a company. If this is the case, there will need to be a board meeting of the company's directors to agree to amend the Articles of Association in order to remove the restriction.

How many directors may a business have?

Your Articles of Association may contain a restriction on the maximum number of directors allowed, but other than that, you can have as many as you like.

Do directors have to be offered shares in the company?

No. Directors do not have to be shareholders so there is no legal requirement to offer shares to a new director.

How Else Can We Help Your Business Thrive?

Need a director’s privacy address?


Director Office Address

Companies House legally require all directors of UK companies and partners of LLPs to register an address for the public record. In addition, any legal documents from Companies House or HMRC are sent to them at the address provided.

For this reason, it is highly recommended that a director’s privacy address in London is purchased.

However, many directors choose to provide their residential address but they are not aware of the consequences of having it listed publicly and accessible by anyone.

As a result, not only is their personal safety at risk, but so are their mailboxes which may become flooded with spam.

We offer a director’s privacy address that serves to maintain your privacy.
