From here you can view and update various company information, including registered office and director information.

Starting a UK limited company is simple. Very often the only hurdle that gets in the way is jargon; ‘company-speak’ that formation agents, accountants and Companies House (the UK’s registrar of companies – we’re busting jargon already!) continually drop onto websites and into conversations.

What is a Share Certificate?
The share certificate is a company document that outlines individual shareholder information including:

- The class of shares held
- The number of shares held
When forming a limited company you need to choose how many shares to allocate to your shareholders. The number of shares that you allocate multiplied by the value of these shares makes up the company’s share capital.

• Select Return of Allotment of Shares from your company admin page
• Enter the number of new shares that you wish to add and select Submit
The request is then sent to Companies House who normally processes it within 3 working hours. Continue reading
