Allotment of shares – from US$85.00

The issue of shares is essentially the process by which companies create new shares to pass onto shareholders, who may themselves be new or existing shareholders. Companies can issue shares to both individuals and corporate bodies.

Need your allotted shares to be updated on the current annual return?

Details of allotted shares will not be updated on an annual return until after the filing of the next annual return. If you wish your allotted shares to show to file an updated annual return straight away, you can add the Annual Return Preparation and Filing Service to your order at the discounted price of US$35.00 (including the Companies Registry filing fee).

What’s included in our price?

We will prepare the following documentation:

  • Special Resolution (where applicable): If a company is issuing more shares to a new shareholder, the existing shareholder(s) must pass a special resolution to approve the increase in share capital and disapply pre-emption rights.
  • Meeting Minutes: Companies are required by Companies and Other Business Entities Act 2006 (Chapter 24:31) to maintain minutes of all meetings of the directors and for these to be available for inspection by any director. The directors should approve minutes to allot new shares to the persons applying for them.
  • Return of Allotment of Shares Form: This form is used to allot shares, and it must be completed and delivered to the Companies Registry within one month of any allotment of shares, otherwise an offence is committed by every officer of the company who is in default (under Companies and Other Business Entities Act [Chapter 24:32])
  • Share Certificate(s): Companies are required to issue share certificates to shareholders within two months of an allotment of shares or the date when the documents necessary to effect the issue have been received by the company.
