Share Services

Transfer of Shares

£79 + VAT

Shares in a Limited Company may be transferred or sold just like any other form of property. Completed documents will include the J30 stock transfer form, the minutes of the meeting and a blank share certificate.

To process a share transfer we require:
  • The name and address of the person or persons from whom the shares are being transferred.
  • The name and address of the person or persons receiving the shares.
  • The number of shares being transferred.
Stamp Duty

If shares are sold for more than £1,000 then the new shareholder or shareholders must send a copy of the transfer form to HMRC and pay the required Stamp Duty. Stamp duty is currently 0.5% of the share amount, rounded to the nearest £5.

For further information and guidance about all share transfers that are valued at over £1,000 we recommend that you speak with a solicitor.

Transfer of Shares & Confirmation Statement

£99 + VAT

Any changes to the shareholding will only be shown on the Companies House register once a Confirmation Statement has been filed. Should you require the changes to be registered at Companies House then we recommend that you buy this bundled service.

Issuing of Shares

£79 + VAT

The issue of shares is the process whereby a company creates new shares to give to new or existing shareholders. Companies can issue shares either to individuals, to corporate bodies or to both.

This service includes the submission to Companies House of a Return of the Allotment of new shares in order to apply for them (using Form SH01), the preparation of a letter of application, the minutes of the meeting, the board resolution and a blank share certificate.

What class of shares can be issued?

Shares can be issued that are of the same class or value as the company's initial shares. We do not involve ourselves with the creation or issuing of new classes of shares.

Issuing of Shares & Confirmation Statement

£99 + VAT
