As of late 2021, all directors are required by law to get a director ID. The process is free, easy and after you have done it – you get to keep your director ID for life.
- If you are already a director or became a director before 31 October 2021, you must apply by 30 November 2022.
- If you became a director between 1 November 2021 and 4 April 2022 then you must apply within 28 days of your appointment.
- If you are planning to become a director from 5 April 2022 onwards, you must apply before your appointment.
