Change in Directors

Directors are appointed by the shareholders of a Company for the management of a Company. A Private Limited Company is required to have a minimum of two Directors and a Limited Company is required to have a minimum of three Directors. On the other hand, a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) has Designated Partners and Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008 requires each LLP to have a minimum of two Designated Partners.

Appointment or removal of a Director or Designated Partners is thus required due to various reasons. Corporate Creators LLP can help you file the necessary filings to add or remove a Director from your Company or add or remove a Designated Partner from your LLP .

To change a registered office within local limits, town or village, a notice of change has to be given to the respective registrar within 30 days of such change.
