When you set up your limited company, you’ll need to create a number of ordinary shares that denote the ownership of the company – find out more about ordinary shares here.
You can change the allocation and value of these shares at a later date, though. To do this, you must inform HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) of the changes and apply for a change to your company’s share structure – either online or by post
Statement of capital
Firstly you must tell HMRC:
- The company’s total number of shares.
- The total value of those shares.
- How many shares have been paid for or not paid for
Details of your shares
For each type of share your company has, you have to tell HMRC:
- The rights that come with it.
- How many of the shares are issued.
- Their total value before any additional costs are added.
You need to tell HMRC about changes to your shares within 21 days of the changes taking place.
