It is the duty of the director(s) of a company to keep the accounting records for a minimum of 6 years. Failure to do this may result in disqualification proceedings being brought.
The director of a fast food takeaway has been banned from being a director of a limited company, for not keeping the company’s financial records for 7 years, meaning that he cannot be involved, directly or indirectly, with the formation, promotion or management of a company without prior permission for the court.
If a company is liquidated it is the duty of the appointed liquidator to take possession of the company records which he will use when he investigated the directors conduct.
