Advantages of the nominee shareholder

Company start up with nominee shareholder services: all limited company details are registered with Companies House, including its officers and shareholders, and this information is available to the public. For companies limited by shares who wish to protect their investors and officers, using nominee services is the most efficient way of doing so. It's particularly helpful to companies who want to avoid competitors knowing what their expansion plans are, especially when moving into new areas of the country or entering new markets.

We will do the rest, and when the new enterprise is registered, you'll get all the official documents to prove its existence, including the certificate of incorporation and memorandum and articles of association.

To safeguard owners' rights and offer reassurance, we provide a number of documents to our clients who use our nominee shareholder service. Our shareholders agreement states clearly that the nominee does not legally own the shares in the private company, and cannot do anything with them, such as sell them off or profit from them via dividends.

This important document lists the real owner of the limited company and its shares, so that there's no doubt. It further states that the real owner's identity will not appear on the public records. In addition, a signed and undated share transfer document allows the real owner to change the nominee shareholder at any time. With Coddan, setting up of a private company using nominee shareholders is the smart way to incorporate, eliminating high costs, lots of time and reams of paperwork elsewhere.
