Apologies if I am stating the obvious but I think that it is always best to clarify the situation with a client before sending a proposal.
My understanding is that you require:
1. A director service agreement between your business and your accountant detailing what your accountant can do as a director. If the accountant acts outside of his powers, then your business will have legal standing to sue him.
2. A document between you, your partner and the accountant detailing how the accountant will act as your nominee shareholder.
Is this correct?
Can you also confirm that the accountant will be named as a board director at Companies House?
Just quickly - who has advised that you cannot be directors until your salaries can be supported? There is no legal restriction in this way - although you may have other issues to contemplate under your contract of employment.
Also, in due course, you need to think about how you plan to draw income - salaries are not the most tax efficient. Do you have an accountant advising you?
A shareholders agreement would be a good idea in any case - it's protection against the (hopefully unlikely) event of you and your partner no longer seeing things the same way.
