What should be included in a service agreement for directors?

These Guidance Notes offer an outline of the relevant provisions, but they are not comprehensive and should not be relied on as authoritative. Specific advice should be obtained on any particular issues.

This factsheet is primarily intended for Directors of private limited companies and unquoted public limited companies. Directors of listed public limited companies will be subject to additional provisions. Each agreement will need to be tailored to the specific needs of the company and the director concerned.
