Remember that if you have any questions you can easily Ask a lawyer.

The Non-Executive Director Letter of Appointment is a special type of contract called a 'deed'. This means it must be signed in a special way:

  1. Print a copy for the company and a copy for the director (the parties).

    You must print a copy of your deed and sign it physically. Deeds can legally be signed using electronic signatures, but extra care must be taken when signing electronically to ensure that all of the formalities for the execution of the particular type of deed are met. This deed is, therefore, designed to be signed by hand (ie ‘wet-signed’) to ensure that it is executed correctly.
  2. The director must sign their copy in the presence of a witness.

  3. The company must sign in the way chosen in the interview (witnesses may be required).

  4. The witnesses must sign and add their name, address, occupation and the date directly underneath the signature of the party they are witnessing.

The date of the Non-Executive Director Letter of Appointment is the date on which the parties signed if that was the same day. If they signed on different days, then it is the day when the last person signed.

Each party should securely store their own signed Non-Executive Director Letter of Appointment. A copy will be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
