Hi thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. To change a directors details including name you need a form CH01. AP01 is used to appoint directors. Can I assist you any further? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. So to clarify - the director terminated his appointment and then reappointed himself/herself a few years later with a changed name? Was the reappointment validly approved by board or shareholder resolution?
Hi, Thank you. Technically his appointment is completely invalid. Companies House is just an administrative record, which you have an obligation to make accurate. If his appointment is not supported by an ordinary resolution or board resolution (or some other formality laid out in the articles or shareholders agreement) it is simply not accurate. All he has done is made a filing at Companies House that is un true. Are there other directors?
Hi Thank you. The deceased shareholder - does his estate make decisions on the shares? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. For the appointment of the other shareholder to be valid, he either needs an ordinary resolution or appointment by another director. If he has neither his appointment is not valid. As a validly appointed director you have an obligation to update the records and make sure they are correct.
