    Company Officials’ Criminal Liability | Kangs Company Offences Defence Solicitors

    The Companies Act 2006 makes provision for criminal liability on the part of directors and other officers of a company arising from a number of activities.

    John Veale of Kangs Solicitors comments upon liability for failing to disclose any personal interest in a company transaction and following accounting failures.

    The Law | Kangs Company Offences Advisory Solicitors

    Failing To Disclose An Interest

    Section 182 provides that a director must declare an interest in an existing transaction or arrangement where:

    • that person is in any way, directly or indirectly interested in it
    • an arrangement has been entered into by the company, the nature and extent of the interest.

    Section 183 creates the offence where a director:

    • fails to comply with section 182
    • commits an offence.

    Penalites For Breach:

    The offence may be tried either before a Magistrates’ Court or a Crown Court and will attract a fine in both courts.

    Accounting Offences

    Section 386 provides that:

    • every company must keep adequate accounting records,
    • sufficient to show and explain the company’s transactions,
    • with reasonable accuracy,
    • and sufficient to enable the directors to ensure compliance with the statutory requirements.

    Section 387 provides that:

    • where a company fails to comply with any provision of section 386
    • an offence is committed by every officer of the company who is in default.

    Penalites For Breach:

    • Magistrates’ Court – a term of imprisonment not exceeding twelve months and a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum.
    • Crown Court – a term of imprisonment not exceeding two years and/or a fine.
