What Is a Shadow Director?
Licensed UK Insolvency Practitioners the UK’s No.1 for Business Recovery
Many people work on the understanding that only registered directors are held legally responsible for acting in the best interest of creditors. However, if you run the business and control the direction of it, giving instruction to the directors then this is referred to as “shadow directing”. If you are considered to be a shadow director you are:
- subject to the same investigations, and
- can be held as accountable as a registered director
For anyone who believes that they may classify as a shadow director and wants to know more about their shadow director responsibilities, it is important to contact a trusted insolvency practitioner. Here at The Insolvency Experts, we have advised many clients around the UK on a range of Director duties, including shadow director liability.
By quickly taking back control we can help you solve the problems that the business has.
