Depending on the jurisdiction in which a company is incorporated information recording the appointments and details of directors and secretaries may be a matter of public record.
Nominee directors provided by us, have no beneficial interest in the company and are not involved in the day to day running of the company. They will however sign contracts and other documents on behalf of the company if required to do so. We can provide a Power of Attorney, which can if required, be notarised and apostilled, giving the beneficial owners or whoever they designate full power to act on behalf of the company in all manner and respects.
We will provide you with an undated letter of resignation so you can remove the nominee at any time should you wish to do so.
Nominee directors can be beneficial where commercial anonymity is required.
It is also beneficial to use nominees who can demonstrate that a company is controlled in a low tax jurisdiction.
A nominee director is not recognised by law and as such has the same legal obligations as a client providing their own directors. Where we are requested to provide nominee’s we will therefore require a full understanding of the nature of your business and also want to know who the beneficial owners of the company are, we will require certified copies of the passport and a recent utility bill or other proof of address for all beneficial owners of the company. This information is provided to us in the strictest confidence and we would only disclose it if required to do so by law.
We can provide UK or overseas nominee directors.
Although a company secretary is no longer required by law in a lot of jurisdictions, we can if required provide a nominee.
