Who can act as a company director

Every company must have at least two directors. But who can act as one? The answer is almost anyone. There is no formal requirements to becoming a company director unless the articles of association of the company say different.

The following can NOT become directors

  • A body corporate (another company)
  • An undischarged bankrupt
  • The auditors of the company
  • Anyone disqualified by the courts from acting as a director
  • Its worth pointing out that directors have a lot of responsibilities and directors should always make themselves aware of them before signing.
