What are Shares?
Shares are tokens of ownership in a company. Each share is worth one vote in company decisions. Upon formation of a company the owner(s) can decide how many shares to allocate and how many each investor/director should receive.
What are they worth?
Shares have a nominal value, which is typically £1 each, but that does not have anything to do with the company’s value. If a company is formed with 100 shares with a value of £1 each, and then the company sells for £200,000 a year later, the real value of those shares is £200 each.
Should the shareholders pay for the shares they receive?
It’s not necessary for directors or shareholders to pay for the shares they own.
Can shares be moved or increased after the formation is complete?
Yes, you can move shares and add additional shares at any time. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
