SHARES AND SHAREHOLDERS IN A UK LTD
What is a share?
A share (or corporate share) is a unit owned by a limited liability company. For example, a company may have 100 shares, each owned by several shareholders.
What is a partner?
Shares (or corporate stakes) can be held by a person or by an entity (such as another company). These shareholders, owning one or more shares, own a part of a limited liability company. Shareholders usually have voting rights in deciding how the company is run and in appointing new directors.
Is there a minimum number of members required for my LTD in London?
A limited liability company (LTD, Limited or PLC) must have at least one partner. There is no upper limit on the number of members you can have within your company. A director can also be the sole shareholder, who owns 100% of the company. The price of a single share can be of any value and you can choose a low share value, such as £ 1.
Can anyone be a member of an English LTD?
Anyone can own stock in a company, including an entity (such as another company).
Do I need more than one partner?
No, only one partner is required to register an English LTD and this person can be the sole director and partner if you are running a business independently for example.
What is the difference between a partner and a director?
The shareholders hold a stake in the company while the directors are appointed to manage the company and carry out daily activities. In smaller companies, the Director tends to be also a partner, if not the only partner.
