This chapter covers the requirements and definitions of directors and other officers. It starts with the requirement of a company to have a director as per the Companies Act 2006. The name or description of the role or position is not relevant in deciding whether someone is a director. Thus, the court will examine the substance of the person’s activities to decide whether he occupies the position of director. The chapter then details the role and definition of several types of directors, such as appointed directors and shadow directors, before discussing the other roles correlated to directors. Meanwhile, the term officer is used as a generic term for directors and secretaries of a company.
