What is a company director’s role?

Directors are appointed by the owners of a company (shareholders or guarantors) to ‘direct’ the day-to-day activities of the company on their behalf. They are responsible for ensuring the smooth running and management of a company by adhering to all legal and contractual requirements, and making the company successful and profitable.

How many directors does a limited company require?

Every limited company must have at least one director. If a limited company has only one director, that director must be a natural person.

Are directors also shareholders?

Directors do not have to be shareholders. Their role is to run the company, so there is no requirement to also be an owner if they do not wish to be; however, if existing shareholders do want to offer shares to the directors, this is perfectly acceptable and fairly common.
