All the documents you will need to appoint a new director

If you are a company secretary, director or otherwise administering a private company you may need this set of documents to appoint new director of your company. It does not matter whether the director is a natural person or a corporate entity. He is a shareholder or a non-shareholder, this should suit you well

The Companies Act 2006 allows you to appoint a director in three ways: by directors’ resolution, in members’ general meeting or by way of written resolution. We have taken advantage of the new flexibility of law in providing you with sets for all three options. They are simple and effective - and in plain English of course.

The draft minutes and notices provided here are of course as required by the Companies Act 2006. These sets of documents do not include the text of your proposed resolution. That is for you to insert.

As with all Net Lawman documents, the drafting notes are immensely valuable. The wording can be added or edited easily because we give you comments and suggestions on every “document” enclosed in the set.

The included documents are:

Directors' service contracts

By following whatever way you appoint the director, you will additionally need to employ him or her. Depending on the relationship the director has with the company, you will need to put in place either an (executive) director's service agreement, a non-executive director's service contract or an unpaid director's service agreement.
