Purchase of Own Shares / Share buy back
The Purchase of Own Shares procedure allows the Company to buy the shares back from the departing shareholder at a price agreed between the parties. The purchase must be made from distributable reserves as a first priority, but it may be possible to perform the purchase from capital once reserves are exhausted. Purchase of own shares, financed from distributable reserves, or from capital can be arranged. We will produce all the necessary Minutes, Resolutions and Contracts and arrange for an advertisement in the national press as required by company law
Event Driven Company Secretarial Services
We have extensive experience in and can assist with, drafting the supporting paperwork for many complicated procedures.
Creation of Multiple Share Classes for Tax Efficiency
In some circumstances it may be beneficial to have more than one class, often referred to as ‘Alphabet Shares’, in order to grant different shareholders different rights. All resolutions and filings are prepared on your behalf. Most common is the desire to grant different shareholders with different levels of dividend, but rights can be varied to achieve most goals. You can create Preference Shares to grant investors a fixed, preferential dividend or Employee Shares to give equity to key staff that must be returned to the Company if the staff member leaves its employ. We do not simply vary the rights of the shares using a Statement of Capital but will update the Articles of Association with comprehensive clauses covering the rights and restrictions of the classes. We can cater for advanced share rights including convertible and redeemable shares, drag and tag along clauses, compulsory transfers, and good & bad leavers.
Dormant Company Maintenance
We will hold the Statutory Registers at our office and file the Annual Confirmation Statement & Dormant Accounts for each year that the service remains active and the company remains dormant. Any changes to company structure would be chargeable, should you require us to prepare the supporting paperwork.
