Being a director of a company carries a high amount of responsibility. On occasion, it is suggested that fraudulent documents have been filed, companies have changed names without permission or invalid addresses have been used for a company’s registration. The list is non-exhaustive but can lead to an invitation been sent out to those individuals believed to be operating the company, to attend Companies House for an interview. Punishment can range from disqualification to court proceedings in respect of allegations of fraud.
We have experience of attending such interviews and advising clients as to their rights and responsibilities in this area. Please contact us for more information.
