All shareholder and director's information must be recorded at Companies House and on the company's statutory registers.
While this will be not an issue for most people, sometimes there are perfectly legitimate reasons for not wanting your details to be available on the public register, for example you may not wish rivals to know about your commercial dealings with the company. We offer nominee shareholder services, whereby we can appoint a company to act as a shareholder on your behalf, normally to keep your ownership of shares confidential. Our nominee shareholder service is a lawful way allowed by the Companies Act which serves to keep your personal information off the public record and enables you to remain anonymous. Therefore, by using the service you can lawfully ensure your anonymity and confidentiality.
The nominee will be a shareholder only in name, with no discretion on how to act in relation to the shares, although they will be registered as the owner. On setting up this arrangement, a power of attorney will be set up to allow the beneficiary to receive dividends and to sign resolutions.
