Director disqualification of a director for actions preceding a director's appointment

Ordinarily a director cannot be disqualified for failing to remedy previous inadequacies in the company before s/he became a director.

However, quite often it is the case that a director comes in to “see out” the company, cover up for previous directors or extract what value is left in a company and all of these approaches are indeed worthy of criticism.

Additionally, a director’s conduct will be assessed where he is appointed and does little or nothing to protect creditors from a deteriorating situation which preceded his/her appointment or where s/he could have done something to prevent a pre-existing situation from getting worse. A director disqualification example of this could be where there are outstanding tax returns from previous periods and a director does not bring them up to date or act to deal with this liability.
