  • sending a confirmation statement every year to Company’s House

Other key duties include:

Company’s constitution
You must follow the written constitution of your company. This is created when you set up your company.

Promote the success of the company
This means considering the impact your company has on others, the environment, any employees and colleagues. It also requires you to act in the interest of creditors if you are insolvent.

Independent judgement
Take advice, but always make decisions for yourself.

Exercise reasonable care, skill and diligence

Avoid conflicts of interest
