Notice of Willingness to be Appointed a Director
When a company appoints a director they must file form AP01 with Companies House. Section 5 of this form requires confirmation that the person being appointed has consented to act as a director for the company.
While not legally required, many companies will ask the new director to sign a notice of willingness to be appointed, an example of which is provided. This short letter confirms that the individual is both willing and able to be a director. The document also often includes statements to confirm that the person has not been disqualified from acting as a director or that they are otherwise prohibited from taking that position.
By asking the individual to sign this notice, the company will have a record of the agreement which is always good practice.
