Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
May I ask if any disqualification order was made as part of the sentencing?
Thanks. A criminal conviction is not a bar in itself to being a company director. People can be disqualified from being a director for periods by failing to comply with the Companies Act requirements to file accounts etc trading a company knowing the company to be insolvent, if they become bankrupt and so on. Being convicted of a crime is not a bar to being a director unless any sentence includes a disqualification order which will be time limited in any event so even if one is made that person will be eligible to be a director again once the disqualification falls away.
It is possible to check the disqualification register here:
Does the above answer all your questions? If it does, I should be very grateful if you would kindly take a moment to click a rating for my service to you today. Your feedback is important to me. If there is anything else I can help with please reply back to me though
No. To be come a director there is just a simple form to fill in and there is no requirement (or space) to declare a criminal conviction.
Does the above answer all your questions or is there anything I can clarify or help you with any further?
A pleasure. Glad I could help.
