Director - Termination of Appointment

April 2012
Director – Termination of Appointment Factsheet

Last month’s Factsheet dealt with appointment of directors; this month we are going to deal with their termination! This brand new Factsheet deals with the termination of a director’s appointment, whether this is by resignation or removal by the shareholders.

The Factsheet (which is part of our ongoing series ‘Factssheets for the Company Secretary’) covers the following:-

• General position as regards a director’s termination
• Automatic termination of appointment
• Resignation
• Procedure for removal/replacement of a director by the shareholders

The Factsheet will also assist the user to locate other relevant documents, including board minutes, letter of resignation, director’s compromise agreement, shareholder notice, special notice of general meeting, general meeting minutes, and letters to Companies House.

Company Secretary Factsheets are easy to use, step-by-step guides to the tasks commonly performed by the company secretary, or the individual acting in that role.
