Legal Guide to Applications for Permission to Act as Director
Obtaining Permission to Act as Director despite Disqualification
The director disqualification regime is principally in place to protect the public from directors that are believed to be “unfit”. It is not, contrary to common belief, in place to punish directors who possess an entrepreneurial spirit.
One of the difficulties with director disqualification Orders stems from the fact that they prevent an individual from not only acting as a director but also from acting, directly or indirectly, in the management of a business.
This Legal Guide explains the circumstances in which a disqualified director can be granted permission by the Court to continue as director notwithstanding a disqualification Order. To discuss your specific situation, do contact us.
