This service is for customers who wish to transfer shares from one shareholder to another.
We will prepare the following documentation:
Details of share transfers will not be updated on the Companies House register until after the filing of the next confirmation statement. If you want your transfer to show on Companies House straight away, you can add the Confirmation Statement Service to your order at the discounted price of £24.99 +VAT (including Companies House filing fee).
Select Buy Now and complete the application form with details of the limited company shares you wish to issue.
Documents will be sent to you by email within 2-3 working days, after all required information is provided.
Yes. We offer this service to all customers, regardless of whether they have incorporated a company with us.
Shares in excess of £1,000 incur a tax or duty of 0.5% on the transaction, which will be rounded up to the nearest £5.00. If you buy shares using a stock transfer form, you should send the form to HMRC for stamping, with stamp duty paid no later than 30 days after the date of the transfer. Your guidance booklet will explain what you need to do here.
Example - If you buy shares worth £1,050, you’ll pay 0.5% on this amount which is £5.25. Therefore the amount of £10 is payable in Stamp Duty.
A confirmation statement (previously known as the annual return) is a report containing accurate and up-to-date information about a limited company on a certain date. The purpose of filing a confirmation statement (at least once every 12 months) is to confirm the limited company details, and report to Companies House any changes to shareholders' details and/or issued share capital.
If you would like to see updated shareholders' information on Companies House records, you should file a confirmation statement, otherwise new shareholders will not be visible until the next confirmation statement is filed. Most banks will request that up-to-date shareholder information is recorded at Companies House.
