Company Directors

Whether you set up your own company, join a board from outside or reach director level via an internal promotion you will need to be aware of the legal implications that attach to your role as a company director. These are known as directors’ duties, some of which are codified in the Companies Act 2006.

However, these codified duties are merely the tip of the legal iceberg of which directors have to be aware. There are numerous other duties ranging from maintaining proper accounts, making returns to the Registrar of Companies, and not trading the company after the point where an insolvent liquidation beckons.

Our publications are here to help you successfully fulfill your duties as a company director.

You may also be interested in our Law for Business page, which covers the key areas of concern for business owners and managers: compliance and regulation, company law, employment and health and safety.
