A director appointment is the formal process of appointing a person as a director of a company. Becoming a director means assuming responsibility for managing the day-to-day business of the company, whilst at the same time being subject to a number of legal duties.
When a person is appointed as a director, their details are added to the Companies House database which is visible to the public.
A director resignation is the process of resigning a person as a director of a company. Doing so ceases most of the powers, duties, and responsibilities placed on the now-resigned director.
Details of resigned directors will remain on the Companies House public record, although it will show that the person is no longer active.
