Why would a company use a nominee officer?


I’ve seen many company registration packages online including nominee officer services. Please indulge my ignorance, but under what circumstances would a newly incorporated company want to use a nominee officer? Cheers



You would use a nominee service if you wanted to keep your name off the public register of companies. Some people and organisations use nominees to protect their privacy or ensure their involvement in a company remains confidential.

The details of an appointed nominee are registered on public record in place of the details of the real officer or member. They are not responsible for running a company - their appointment is in name only. The real officer or member is still responsible for carrying out the executive functions of the role.
