"Thanks John, Maybe we should start a thread/list on here about funding bodies which fund CICs and how many directors are needed for each. What do you think?"

"Ah, it seems that this is only required by Credit Unions!. But I guess that A AML policy is something still worth having, so if anyone does have a template that they are willing to share, this would be really useful. Thanks."

If I put myself down, then it will be in conflict with my Article of Association, which states that all Directors will have equal control, apart from when there is only one director.Has anyone else had this issue? I have read…See More
