What date to use on company accounts

What date to use on company accounts for resignation of director

Hi,

A new charity client whose annual accounts are just being finished off - one of their directors passed away during the year being reported on.

The charity have been 5 months late in reporting director termination to Companies House and are putting down this late date as "resignation" date of the director in the annual accounts, under the charity info where all directors are shown.

In terms of etiquette, should I report the resignation date in the annual accounts as date of death, or date Co House notified?

It's important to get this right and I am erring towards date of death whilst charity have put down Co House date

any thoughts?

cheers

He's not resigned, has he?

He died. Just put down what actually happened.

How can he have resigned after he was dead ? Was there a directors meeting or a séance?

Ask the directors how they'll explain this discrepancy in dates if challenged.

Did he resign on grounds of ill health after he had died? How can what the charity has done be remotely correct.

When Co House was notified did they put the termination date, so date of death? The date the filing is made and the date from when it is effective can be and are usually different.

Anyway per above, put what actually happened in the accounts, so ceased as a Director on date of death.
