Remove / Resign Members or Directors

Do you need to remove a Director from a Company? We can process these changes for you ASAP at CIPC.

As a Company downscales or restructures, they need to remove inactive Members (for CC’s) and Directors (for Pty’s) in some cases. In other cases the Member / Director wants to resign as he or she is no longer part of the business. To change a Company’s Directorship a ‘Directors Amendment’ process at CIPC is required. This will bring about the Director’s change on the Company’s Registration Documentation at CIPC. We provide this Amendment service.



(1) No function / silent partner

If a Director has no specific function in the Company which is of value to the Company’s growth, it is best to remove the Director from the Company. A Buy-out may be required in existing Companies.

(2) Legal ownership and responsibility

If a Director is removed from the Company, he / she no longer has the personal responsibility under the Companies Act of 2008 to be involved in the management of the Company. After this process is done, the old Director will NOT be able to become a signatory on the Company’s behalf at the bank or for contracts,
