Section 137 Non Resident Director Bonds

Every company in Ireland must have at least one EU Resident Director. For companies that don’t we can arrange a Section 137 Bond which is issued in accordance with the Companies Act 2014. The Section 137 bond is a guarantee that you will pay a specified amount of money if called upon. The company that underwrites the Section 137 bond (the guarantor) will honour the obligation to pay an agreed amount if called upon. A Section 137 bond is different to an insurance policy.

 

How is a Section 137 Bond called upon?

These particular Section 137 bonds are called upon if the company fails to pay a fine or penalty, refer to the link below for more information:
