Check that the corporate governance settings are correct. If not, click the "Update & confirm" link and ensure we have the correct governance settings for your company.

If the director you are adding is corporate, click the link just under the title of the page. The rest of the process is the same.

Scrolling down, you will need to enter some details for the director. If they are an individual:

  • Name (Legal name, no nicknames or abbreviations);
  • Email (so we know where to send directors' resolutions);
  • Date of Birth;
  • Nationality;
  • Occupation;
  • Country of residence;
  • Date of appointment;

For a Corporate director, you will need to tell us:

If the company is not registered in the EEA, you will also need to tell us the company's Legal form (e.g. Limited Company), and the law governing the company (e.g. Companies Act 2006).

Once you are happy with the details, clicking the "Add director" button will send out the necessary resolutions. Once these are signed, the platform will update Companies House with the new details.Screen Shot 2020-03-27 at 15.11.52

Nearly finished! Here, the fields that are still missing will be labelled "required" in red. To add each piece of information, click the relevant link next to it (e.g. "Add address" next to "Residential Address"). Appointments wont be sent to Companies House until these fields are all complete.

Once that is done, and the resolutions are signed, Companies House will be updated and you're all done!

If a Director is resigning, you will need to let us know so that we can update the platform. To reach out, click the Help button on the bottom right of any page on the platform:

Please email us with the details of who has resigned and what date.
