What is a Nominee Director?
A nominee director is a director appointed to the board of a company to represent the interests of his appointer on that board. The beneficial owner may choose to appoint a Nominee Director because they do not want to register the company with their name showing as Director. We do not get involved in the running of your company and are on the Companies House register in name only.
This service is valid for a period of 12 months, and can be renewed after this period. This service includes an individual Nominee Director to be appointed to your UK Company.
When can I use a Nominee?
You can select to have a Nominee Director when incorporating your company and entering all the company information. The Nominee will then be appointed upon incorporation and the name of the Nominee will appear on the incorporation documents under the director details.
You are also able to purchase our Nominee Director service after incorporation. Once we have received an order we will take action to appoint the Director to your company. The change will also be recorded with Companies House.
What do I need to provide?
The only information that we require from you for our Nominee Service is:
- Beneficial Owners Name
- Beneficial Owners Address
- Business Activities
We will then be able to prepare the relevant nominee documents for you. You will be asked to provide the above information on receipt of an order.
How long is the Nominee Director Service valid?
The Nominee Director Service is valid for a period of 12 months, after this period you can choose to renew the service or we can resign as Director of your company.
We will send you an email reminder 1 month before the service is due to expire
Can I have a Power of Attorney giving authority to the Beneficial Owner?
The issuance of a Power of Attorney is not included in our Nominee Director price. However, you are able to order a Power of Attorney directly from our UK Additional Services. Please note that the Power of Attorney price is only applicable to new Nominee Director orders.
If you would like to order a Nominee Director for your company, please order this service from our UK Additional Services.
