    Yep, you can have non-resident directors. All directors must be over 16, not have ongoing bankruptcy proceedings against them, and not have ever been disqualified as a director.

    Company directors usually have to complete a tax return, regardless of residency. Any income received for the role as office holder should be subject to PAYE, and reported on the tax return.

    There is a useful summary here: http://www.blickrothenberg.com/getm...198226ec/GI-8-Non-resident-directors.pdf.aspx
