Who can be a Company Director?


Rules Governing Becoming a Company Director

The rules governing who can be a company director are contained within the Companies Act 2006, Part 10, Chapter 1.

The requirements state that appointees must be over the age if 15, that is a person of 16 may become a company director.

Disqualified and Undischarged Bankrupts

Persons who are currently disqualified from being a company officer or those who are undischarged bankrupts are also prohibited from being company directors.

Apart from the disqualification and bankruptcy provisions, in reality, Companies House will accept nominations for any persons the shareholders of a given company deem fit to act in that capacity.

The Companies Act 2006 requires a person or other entity seeking appointment as a sole director to be a natural person. This requirement means that an individual person must be appointed for a single director company.
