The company needs just one person appointed as director of the company. A company secretary and other directors are optional. You do not have to be a UK national or resident to be an officer of a UK company.

The company must also have a registered office within the United Kingdom. This is the official address of the company, it does not have to be a trading address, and the company does not have to maintain a presence at the address. We will provide you with an address to use as your registered office.
