What is a share transfer?

There may be instances when you need to alter your company’s share structure, either by adding a new shareholder or adjusting the existing share percentages between owners.

The process of moving existing shares from one person to another, either through sale or gift, is known as a share transfer.

Transferring your shares

Transferring your shares

Shares can be moved from one person to another (either a new or existing shareholder). Likewise, shares can be given away or sold. Usually, shares are moved to make room for a new person to be a shareholder.

As long as a company has enough shares, you can transfer shares to a limited company at any time after it was formed.

Before you do anything to change your company’s share structure, talk to your client manager. Tell them what you want to do and they will be able to assist with any required compliance and tax-saving opportunities.

You will need to change your company’s confirmation statement with Companies House to show that the new share structure in your company has been put in place. In your confirmation statement, you need to write down the contact details of the person who bought your shares.
