14 - Minutes of the first board meeting

Even if your limited company only consists of you as the only company director and only shareholder you are still expected to hold an initial board meeting. This is where the shareholders (you) officially appoint the company directors (also you). It sounds a little silly but it is a legal requirement that you have the minutes of the meeting as they are what prove your company directors were properly appointed.

If you form a company direct with Companies House they will not provide you with the minutes of your first board meeting or any guidance on how to complete them. TheCompanyWarehouse.co.uk can provide you with the minutes of your first board meeting in the correct format to show that your company directors have been properly appointed. You just then need to keep this document in case anyone ever asks for it. We can do this for you even if you did not setup your limited company through our website.
