Long Form Board Minutes – Appointment of Directors
These board minutes are a long form board minute to appoint new director(s) to a company and are modelled on our standard form of board minute to appoint new directors.
These board minutes set out in more detail the reason(s) for the appointment and give options as to how the new director(s) will be appointed, i.e., by board resolution (passed at this meeting or by a separate resolution of the directors) or by an ordinary resolution of the shareholders (passed as a written resolution or at general meeting).
These board minutes also allow for the approval of any service contract the new director(s) may be entering into.
The same principles apply to the appointment of directors whether using our standard or long form board minutes to approve the appointment. Therefore, the company’s articles must be checked to ensure the company is following the correct procedure to make the appointment(s). The director(s) must consent to the appointment and this statement must be sent to Companies House with the notice of appointment. This statement is part of Companies House form AP01.
