Register of directors

 

Companies House requires every company to keep and maintain the register of directors and this register is to be made available for inspection at your company's registered office or at a Single Alternative Inspection Location (SAIL).

The information about each director to be kept includes:

For person director

  • His or her name and any former name
  • A service address
  • Home address include the country of residence
  • Nationality
  • Business occupation
  • Date of birth

For corporate director

  • The company or the firm name
  • Its registered office or principal office
  • For EEA company, where it is registered and its registered number
  • For others, the legal form of the company or firm and the law by which it is governed and if applicable, where it was registered and its registration number.

You may use the standard company registers to maintain your company records. All the registers are organized into sections and printed in A4 size.

Changes in Directors and particulars

If there are any changes to the company directors' details, appointment or resignation, the register of directors must be updated and Companies House must be informed of the changes by filing relevant Companies House forms within 14 days.

These changes must also be reported when submitting your company's confirmation statement.
