Our nominee director services are legal & discreet ensuring identity protection and easy company formation for non-UK residents wanting anonymous company ownership. We can also provide exclusive company nominee directors; all our nominee directors are UK citizens.
In the United Kingdom, it is a requirement of company law that information on the company directors, officers and shareholders must be registered in the public files of the Companies Registry, (such as: name, address, occupation, and date of appointment, as stated in the companies act 2014).
There are many legitimate reasons some company owners wish to remain anonymous & do not want their name or personal information to appear on the Companies Registry.
Nominee directors are appointed to the board of a company to represent the interests of their appointor on that board & to protect the confidentiality of the company beneficial owner. Our nominee director services ensure the company owner retains complete control, but the nominee directors name is filed with the Companies Registry so that anyone performing a company search will see the nominee directors name on the company records and not the owners, providing anonymity and identity protection for the owner.
The idea of a nominee director may seem full of difficulties and can, in some instances be used incorrectly. Indeed, such arrangements have often been put in place without realising the implications involved, either to the nominee in question, or the appointing company.
It is, however, extremely common to appoint nominee directors. Such individuals may range from being a senior member of the original company to a local person and are perfectly legal and safe, providing you are cautious. This is why its important to choose the right provider for your director services and ensure the right agreement for appointment of your nominee director is in place.

We recently worked with CG Incorporations to take corporate advice and nominee director services for our UK entity. CG incorporation team is really experienced in this field and they helped us alot by providing the required services on time & to understand the corporate structure, compliance requirements in UK. The whole process was very seamless & fast. I would highly recommend CG incorporation, if you are planning to expand your business in UK or EU from overseas. Our company was in touch with Tripty from CG Incorporations, and she was very helpful throughout the process. Kudos to the whole team for great services :)
