Directors and secretaries

1 May 2009

This guide includes the roles and responsibilities of a company director and secretary. It also outlines what information you have to deliver to Companies House when particular changes occur within your company. The guide will not tell you everything about being a director or secretary, but it will give you a good idea of your responsibilities as they relate to Companies House.

This guide is for directors, secretaries and persons acting as advisers to UK registered companies. It covers what you need to file when particular changes occur within your company so that Companies House can update the public record and ensure searchers have access to an up-to-date picture of your company.
