Add/Removal of Director

With the constant changes in the employees, addition or removal of directors of the company is also quite common. But unlike the change of an employee at junior level, the change of Directors is quite a legal and tedious job to carry out. Legally, addition or removal of any Directors due to any reason is resolved at the Annual General Meeting(AGM). However, any such changes have no effect on business, as it continues to exist indefinitely and remains independent.
