With expert guidance, you can make the most of every company share you own.

The rights and responsibilities attached to shares differ significantly, so it’s key that you understand what rules govern your shares to ensure you meet your obligations and reap the rewards.

A share is basically a unit of capital, expressing the ownership relationship between the company and shareholders. Generally speaking, the more shares you have, the more power you have to shape a company’s future. 

Under UK law, a commercial company must have at least one issued share, but typically they have many issued shares. This is a matter of choice for those registering or running the company.

It is common to see many different types of shares such as ordinary shares, preference shares or redeemable shares and each offers different rights and responsibilities to shareholders.

Equally, ‘alphabet’ shares have become increasingly common where a class of shares (such as the ordinary shares) is divided in to ‘A’ shares, ‘B’ shares, ‘C’ shares and so on. Typically, the purpose of this is to allow the ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ shares to be treated differently in some way.
