What is the minimum number of directors required for my company?

The Companies Act 2006 requires that all types of private company in the UK must have at least one director. If a company only has one director then that director must be an individual rather than a corporate entity (e.g. another company).

The Articles of Association of a company may also impose a minimum number of directors.

If you are forming your UK limited company with Lightwork Business then our Articles will allow you to have the statutory minimum number of directors which is one.
