Around this time last year, we sent you an email alerting you to the new process for Director IDs. With the deadline of 30th November approaching for all Company Directors to verify their identity by applying for a Director identification number, we felt it necessary to send you this information again.
About Director IDs:
A Director ID is a unique identifier that you will keep forever. The Government expects the Director ID regime will help to prevent illegal phoenixing by ensuring directors can be traced across companies, while also preventing the use of false or fictitious identities. See the table below for when your Director ID Application is required.
Once you have received your Director ID, you will need to pass this onto your company secretary or authorised agent of the company.
When Do You Need To Apply?
|Date of Director’s Appointment||Deadline for Director ID Application|
