Bankruptcy and Shadow Directors

Know about bankruptcy and eligibility for Shadow Director

If the company is “accustomed to act in the accordance with the persons instructions or wishes”, that person would then be classed as a Shadow Director.

However where or when a person conveys their instructions or wishes, then the board makes a decision within independent consideration on its own basis, it would not be an example of acting in accordance of another persons instructions.

For a party to be considered as a shadow director

1. There must be a pattern of compliance over time to the instructions and wishes from that person.

2. Their direct instruction must be direct cause for the relevant decision to be made.

3. They do not need to control all of the directors, only the majority of them

4. Their instructions must directly correlate to the company’s corporate activity

Making corporate decisions and giving advice for another company should only be given if you are certain it would fall outside the classification of being classed as De Facto or Shadow director, or you could be at risk of director’s personal liability.
