Company Sole Director Documents

Even when a company has only one director in office, it should (even if as a matter of good corporate governance and business practice), keep a written record of the decisions that it makes.

Below are template minutes for companies with one director. Whilst section 248 of the Companies Act 2006 requires every company to take minutes of all proceedings (and retain them for 10 years), the position as it applies to sole directors is less clear as meetings are usually held with more than one person. However, it is considered best practice for sole directors to record their decisions, and this is usually done as written board resolutions.

In addition, considering the 2022 case of Hashmi v Lorimer-Wing, the question of whether a sole director can make decisions on their own and effectively run a company has also arisen. To address this, additional templates specific to sole director companies have also been added. This includes amended model articles that sole director companies may wish to adopt.

The documents in this subfolder are compliant with the Companies Act 2006.
