Voting Rights of Non Executive Directors.

We would like to appoint some Non Executive Directors but we want to limit their voting rights to exclude certain things. Does anyone have examples of the sort of voting rights that you can you exclude without making their appointment meaningless, and how do you do it because the form you fill in for a non-executive director is the same a for a Director? We would for instance want to limit their ability to vote to sack us, the two founding Directors, without an extremely good reason!

That is correct.

Although it may depend on the voting tights of the Chair, who may have the casting vote?

Even numbers of directors are not always a good idea!

Hi Sorry if im being a bit dim, but I have a question about the new Person of significant control register. 

Our CIC is limited by guarantee and therefore there are no share holders and the directors meetings are equal voting so I am unsure if all the directors (4) hold it equally and therefore wouldn't go on it because it would be 25%?

Really sorry.. cheers
