Directors have responsibilities to their company and shareholders, and under the Companies Act 1993.
You must register all your directors with the Companies Office and they must sign a consent form. Find out about filing an annual return — the information you need to update, how to change your filing month or request a time extension — and what happens if you don't file your annual return by the due date.
When you incorporate, you must provide details of all company shares and shareholders.
As changes occur, you must update this information on your own share register and in your company's annual return.
Once your company is registered with the Companies Office, nominate who will have authority to file your annual returns, and update your name, address, constitution, director and shareholder details.

Unsecured creditors can’t take legal action against a company in liquidation or deal with its property unless they have permission from the Court or the Liquidator.
If the business is closed, your employment will end.
If you have lost your job, you can file a claim in the liquidation if you are owed any salary, wages, holiday pay or redundancy.
