I have a related question but I would like to understand the position on this first.
Ok - Co Ho do not check in reality
It should be accurate of course, but in reality no one is going to find out
You can submit a new annual return (not accounts) and clarify that the Director is on the books
Indeed you can add them at Companies House
But really Co Ho are not going to check
It is not as if you are M&S and the accounts are wrong
So whilst they should be accurate I would not concern yourself too much
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
It was a deliberate omission.. There has been an argument over who can be a director even though we all can if we wish. The director has been on record for over six months but other directors were being mischievous when filing. Everyone is appointed through electronic filing but they are trying to challenge this one appointment..
Ok - there must have been a resolution of the Board or shareholdesr
If it was passed then it must be correct and submittefd
* submitted *
But if it was not done Co Ho generally do not check as this would be an impossible check as there are many thousands of companies
Can I clarify anything else for you?
There was not a board meeting and there was not a resolution. The accounts were signed off by some of the Directors but not all. The Director is on CH records and he wishes to remain so. They have just left the Directorship on record but ignored it deliberately when submitting the accounts and trying to ignore the Director all together. What should the Director in question do about this?
I see. The Directors may not need to be signed off by all.
However the Director can contact Companies House to see if they will investigate.
Does that help?
Yes thanks. Are CH likely to investigate if they think that the omission was on purpose? Would it mean the accounts are rejected and then have to be resubmitted?
Well if it was not accidental then they may have to
It may just be a case that the accounts can be amended rather than being late.
Thanks for your help.
