initially it was done under the basis that i wouldnt have to protect myself from issues like this , they were signed to me and appear on the likes of companies house under my name etc ?
No , Who would issue that or would i need to apply for it personally ?
no i didnt pay for them as it is a company myself and a colleague have started from scratch , is there anyway i can get a certificate now after the fact ?
They haven't been taken from me as yet to my knowledge but things have become very sour between me and my business partner and its impossible for us now to work together , neither me nor my business partner are listed as director as we were advised not to be by our account but unfortunately the only director is my former closest friends fiance!?
The problem I have is that initially we were given help by a joint friend who in return for a set up loan got 20% of the shares and me and my partner 40/40, some time ago i locked the security code i had for access to the company account which wasnt a issue at the time but now i am being deigned access to the account and pushed out of the business and i need to make sure the shares cannot be automatically taken from me as i have spent 4 years building this company !
i am named as a 40% share holder on companies house as I've just checked , so they above would apply then?
