Transfer of shares

Are you looking to transfer the shares of your limited company? With years of experience in UK accounting and company procedures we can help you transfer the shares in the right way.

Our team will collect the necessary details for the transfer of shares such as the directors and shareholders involved and the exact shares structure, and then prepare share transfer form and any other paperwork required, and file the changes with the Companies House. Details of the new shareholder will then be listed on the public register when the next company confirmation statement is filed, as those details must be disclosed at this point.

If you require the details to be updated before this date, you will need to file an early confirmation statement. We can prepare a confirmation statement as part of this order at an additional cost of £24 +VAT (this includes the Companies House filing fee of £13.00).

How it works

  • Click the ‘Order Now’ button
  • Fill your details and complete the payment
  • We will send you the documents electronically within 3 working day
  • You must return the signed stock transfer form to us which is signed by the person transferring the shares (not the person receiving them.)
  • We can provide you with printed documents by post for an additional fee
  • If requested, we will file a confirmation statement (see above)

Proof of ID

  • Anti Money Laundering (AML) regulations require us to request photo ID and proof of address. These will be requested as required by law, and must be provided before we process this service.

What is transfer of shares for a UK limited company?

Transfer of shares is the process of transferring the existing shares from one person (shareholder) to another, either by sales or by agreement. Limited company shares can be transferred or sold to other persons or corporate entities (e.g. another limited company) or by changing the existing proportion of shares between the shareholders.

Transfer of shares can involve one of the following scenarios:

  • Transfer of shares from existing shareholder to another
  • Changing the proportion of shares between existing shareholders
  • Appointing a new shareholder and transferring shares or changing the proposition of shares
  • Appointing another company as a shareholder and then transferring or changing the proportions of existing share structure

Can you provide address service for the new shareholder?

Yes, you can use our director’s service address to prevent your new shareholder’s home address being displayed in the public domain.

What is included in our price?

We will prepare the following documentation:

  • A stock transfer form must be completed to legally transfer ownership from the existing shareholder to a new shareholder (Note: If shares are sold for more than £1,000, the new shareholder must send a copy of the transfer form to HMRC and pay the required stamp duty)
  • Board meeting minutes, where the directors authorise the transfer of shares
  • Share certificates to issue to new shareholder(s), as required by law

Do you also offer Issue of shares service?

Yes, we can also help you on issue of shares for your limited company, please refer our issues of shares page for more information.
