The Unique Tax Reference (UTR) is a 10-digit number unique to your company that’s issued by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). HMRC are notified once as your company has been registered, they’ll then mail (regular mail, not email) your company’s UTR to the Registered Office normally within a few weeks of incorporation.
The only way to notify Companies House about a change in your limited company’s shareholding situation is to file a confirmation statement. Whilst the J30 stock transfer form/s should be completed and kept when the transfers take place, the confirmation statement is the actual method used to let Companies House know about the change.
When forming a limited company it’s possible to have another company acting as any of the following: director, shareholder, person with significant control (PSC), and secretary. These are called ‘corporate appointments’.
