Yes and No. The law does not require a UK company to have a UK resident director. However the tax authorities in your country of residence may argue that your UK company is taxable in YOUR home country/country of residence unless you have a UK resident director. You need to discuss this with your tax advisor at home.

You may decide to have your own UK resident director. Alternatively, one of our UK resident consultants (at St Matthew) can become a nominee director. ´╗┐This service is optional.
