I have come accross a company that wish to purchase from a client. Everything is in order in terms of credit checking but I note our client has received correspondance from a "director" dating back two three months.
The person is definately in the employ of the company however he is not appointed as a director with Companies House, the only other director is a non UK resident (out client has spoken to the appointed director too).
I can't seem to find a definative answer, but it is wrong to call someone a "director" when they have not been appointed with Companies House for some months? Is there a time limit on this and are there any penalties? The form does say "date of appointment" so in theory it could be backdated to reflect the relevant board meeting.
All answers appreciated!!
