What shareholder details are on public record?

When you register a company with Companies House, a lot of information is stored on record. Details of your registered office address, directors address and shareholder information is required. As Companies House is a public registrar the information is made available for the public, this is to ensure transparency of trading and that the company owners are accountable for the actions.

What details are made public?

When you first form the company you will be required to provide all the correct details; shareholders full names are on record along with the shareholders addresses. Once the company has been formed and new shareholders join only their full name is required. This means no address is needed, you are not legally required to inform Companies House of your address or change of address. When you first form the company you will need to provide the value of the share, the type of share (class), and the number of shares that have been issued.
