What is the “Return of Allotment of Shares”?

The “Return of Allotment of Shares” is the process of adding new shares into a company.

For example, a company formed with 1 share can complete a “Return of Allotment of Shares” (also known as the SH01 form) and increase the number of shares to a new amount. The name of the shareholder who is to receive these shares is not named until the confirmation statement is filed with Companies House.
