Companies Act 2006

Section 157: Minimum age for appointment as director

284.This section is a new provision. It introduces a minimum age of 16 for a natural person to be a director. Subsection (2) provides that prohibition will not prevent the appointment of a younger person provided it is not to take effect until that person is 16. Subsection (3) provides that the age limit applies even if the director’s appointment is a consequence of some other appointment. Subsection (5) provides that this prohibition on under-age directors does not provide protection from criminal prosecution or civil liability if he or she were to act as director, i.e. as a de facto director, or if the company’s directors usually act on that young person’s instructions.
