Many company directors are simply unaware they may have a potential claim for director redundancy following the liquidation of their insolvent company. However, in the majority of cases directors are also often classed as employees of their company as well, and so long as they have been receiving a salary through the PAYE system, they are likely to qualify for redundancy once the company closes.
Just like with redundancy pay for employees there is an eligibility criteria which needs to be met in order for a director to qualify for such a pay-out. These requirements are that their limited company must have been incorporated for a minimum of two years, during which time they must have taken an active role in the day to day running of the business working a minimum of 16 hours a week.
Should a director qualify for redundancy, they are also likely to be able to claim for additional statutory entitlements such as holiday pay, notice pay, and unpaid wages. These additional elements have the potential to significantly increase the total value of the claim. In fact, the average amount payment received by directors is £12,000 – an amount which could make a huge difference during the closure of your company and subsequent loss of income.
