Adding a Director - An Overview:
It is possible to add or remove a director from the company at any time. While the articles of incorporation should have provisions allowing it, the Articles of Association and Companies Act provisions dictate how and who can be appointed as a new director. Appointment of additional directors to the company involves following a bunch of procedures and Easebis is here to help you make the whole process easy for you. In addition, you can receive the director appointment form at ease.
Under the section 2 (34) of the Companies Act, 2013 -a person who has been appointed to the Board of Directors is called a “Director” who is appointed to carry out the responsibilities and functions that a company’s director do in accordance with the Companies Act of 2013.
Why to Change Directors of a Company?
The following are the common reasons why people choose to add or change directors in a company:
To get new talent on board
As your company grows and evolves, you will need to bring new talent on board to meet the new requirements and challenges. It is natural to want to add or make changes in the top-level management.
No dilution of ownership
Directors are primarily responsible for the day-to-day operations of a company. Adding or appointing an additional director helps the shareholders assign more operational responsibilities without losing any strategic control.
Inefficiency of existing directors
It could be that the existing directors cannot meet the requirements of the work or maybe even due to retirement, family problems, physical ailments or other personal reasons. In such cases, you need to add new directors.
To meet the statutory limit
Every type of company needs a certain number of directors. In case of sudden death or plans of retirement from existing directors, you will have to add another director to your company.
Encrypt DSC: This type of dsc registration is widely used to protect a document. It is used to encrypt a document and is used in tender portals to help businesses that focus on uploading their papers.
The certificate might potentially be used to deliver encrypted, sensitive information. Legal documents, e-commerce documents, and distributing documents containing highly confidential information are appropriate uses for encrypting DSC. The encrypt certificate is a standalone certificate.
Encrypt and Sign: Both signing and encrypting may be done using the Sign & Encrypt DSC. It is apt for users who wish to uphold the privacy of shared information and authenticate the same. It is used for submitting applications and forms to the government.
Process of Adding a Director of the Company
The process of adding a director is more complicated than one might think it to be.
Step 1: Check if the articles (AOA) of the company supports adding an additional director. If there are no such provisions in the AoA of the company, then modify the AoA of the company in a way that allows adding an additional company director.
Step 2: The proposed director must give his or her consent to act as the director via director appointment form
Step 3: The company must pass a board resolution for appointment of director of the company.
Step 4: Get DSC (Digital Signature Registration) and DIN (director identification number) for the new director.
Step 5: Collect the basic documents and information required for the process and get Form DIR-2, Form DIR-12 and Form DIR-8 at ROC done.
