      Minimum age to register a UK Ltd company - Company director age requirements

      I want to set up a limited company to support my eBay selling. I was wondering what the minimum age to be assigned director in the UK is, since Iím 18.

      Youíve got it beat by 2 years. Well done! The minimum age for a directorship assignment is 16 in the whole of the island. For years, the only hard-and-fast law was in Scotland, and the only thing in the way of 15-year-old directors was the fact that the director-to-be had to be capable of legally consenting to his appointment. They functionally had a minimum age, but nothing else more concrete until the Companies Act of 2006 set in stone, the minimum age of 16.

      Just out of curiosity, what exceptions are in place for younger directors?

      Not any more. Prior to 2006, under-age directors could be appointed by exception in England and Wales, but after the Companies Act, even those exception appointments already in power, were removed from office if they were still under 16.
