If your company has not yet been formed, please click here to find out how to appoint a corporate director during the application stage.
Steps to appoint a company as a shareholder for an existing company:
Changes cannot be made to the shareholder structure direct from your Company Formation MadeSimple account once your company has been incorporated.
Therefore, you will need to:
- Allocate the corporate shareholder with a share capital (if you have already, skip to step 3). You would either need to issue additional shares or transfer existing shares to the new shareholder. We can help you do this via our Share Services.
- Ensure all subscribers have agreed and signed the relevant forms, along with meeting minutes and updated share certificates, once the share(s) are issued.
- File a confirmation statement and enter the new shareholder information. You can file an early confirmation statement or wait until the due date. Once filed, the information will be updated with our system and Companies House within 24-48 hours.
- File a special or ordinary resolution to Companies House within 15 days.
