In a world where companies have expanded across the globe there is an expectation that individuals will assume the role of director wherever a subsidiary may be registered. Understanding and becoming aware of the duties and responsibilities of being a director in such countries helps reduce the risks that both the company and the individual face.

Our International Corporate Secretarial team have developed this country guide to ensure that directors are kept informed of their responsibilities, powers and liabilities and to offer support to in-house legal teams. The guide covers the most important responsibilities, powers and liabilities within each jurisdiction and provides practical, succinct and clear guidance for application by directors in their day to day activities without excessive legal jargon.

The guides are based on the most common forms of entities in each jurisdiction. However the majority of responsibilities, powers and liabilities will be the same for all directors within the jurisdiction, regardless of entity type.

It is recommended that the country guide is reviewed annually to ensure the advice is current and still considered best practice. In addition to producing Directors Duties Handbooks, our team offers an annual compliance service in over 100 jurisdictions, reassuring Directors that the management of local compliance requirements are in safe hands. The team also handles a wide range of corporate secretarial matters, some of which include incorporation, capital contribution, cash repatriation and dissolution.
