Frequently asked questions
- What are ordinary shares?
Every limited company in the UK is split into a certain number of shares, the most common of which are ordinary shares. At their simplest, these give the holders the same rights to dividends, capital and voting in the company.
- What is conditional equity?
Many companies are founded with and issue only ordinary shares. However, these are very difficult to claw back. Conditional shares are issued with strings attached. If the recipient does not meet the required KPIs then the shares are simply deferred and cancelled.
- What are my Co-Sec requirements?
Under the Companies Act 2006 all private limited companies are required to report certain information to Companies House including changes to their company structure or business information. This can be done digitally via the Vestd platform.
- What is shareholder dilution?
This happens when a company issues new shares thereby reducing the ownership percentage of existing ones. But, it shouldn’t be as scary as it sounds. If the shares are issued in return for investment or to enfranchise team members, it may well result in the value of the company increasing.
