Thanks for the response.
The mems and arts state it is a company limited by share.
As far as I can see there aren't any criteria - the best I can see is that it is prohibited for members of the public to own shares....
I've uploaded the m and a's FYI
Yes I believe we did, the solicitor who handled the case replied with:
I can see that we served notice of transfer on the management compnay but it seems we didnt receive a share certificate from the sellers lawyers on completion to transfer on to yourselves.I will urgently get on to this with the sellers lawyers.
Per annual returns etc, I am a share holder - but it is literally the lack of a share certificate that is the problem for us. This is all a condition of completing so I don't know the best method in satisfying what our buyers solicitor is looking for
Thanks for that AJ, makes perfect sense.
I will get cracking with it - presumably the fact that both the other shareholders are overseas I put 'Not present'?
This is all 'in house' admin then? As in nothing needs to be sent/registered at companies house?
Sorry, last one
Just clarify the written resolution bit? Obviously the director in Aus will need to also sign the certifcates of the other 2?
Thanks for your help - my solicitor has been so unhelpful, which is madness considering the share issue is something vital to completion!
Right - I will get cracking with that. I assumed I wasn't allowed to sign my own share certificate - so that's a bonus.
So just to confirm - the director in Australia - I can email the minutes/resolution over to her and she can sign and post back - eg it doesn't necessarily need to be the same piece of paper that I and the other director sign?
Hi, Thank you. As long as you are a director and it is signed by at least two directors - you can sign your own share certificate. Correct the person in Australia needs to sign the resolution as a shareholder - yes they can sign a separate copy as long as the copies are identical and they are all kept together on the company books. What you are doing is correcting and making accurate the company administration. There is no prescribed form, just make sure what you have done has been approved as I have described is coherently and accurately recorded. Kind regards AJ
