Types of Share in business

Active Member


I'm new to the forums, obviously, and am with a new B2B networking company. In the past couple of months while the finalization process was underway I have learned a great deal about marketing, advertising, B2B interaction, as well as many of the ins and outs to an online business. I've come here in hopes of sharing what I've learned as well as learning from anyone's experiences. I look forward to the new information and experiences this forum will help me acquire.

A company may have many different types of shares that come with different conditions and rights.

There are four main types of shares:

* Ordinary shares are standard shares with no special rights or restrictions. They have the potential to give the highest financial gains, but also have the highest risk. Ordinary shareholders are the last to be paid if the company is wound up.
* Preference shares typically carry a right that gives the holder preferential treatment when annual dividends are distributed to shareholders. Shares in this category have a fixed value, which means that a shareholder would not benefit from an increase in the business' profits. However, usually they have rights to their dividend ahead of ordinary shareholders if the business is in trouble. Also, where a business is wound up, they are likely to be repaid the par or nominal value of shares ahead of ordinary shareholders.
* Cumulative preference shares give holders the right that, if a dividend cannot be paid one year, it will be carried forward to successive years. Dividends on cumulative preference shares must be paid, despite the earning levels of the business.
* Redeemable shares come with an agreement that the company can buy them back at a future date - this can be at a fixed date or at the choice of the business. A company cannot issue only redeemable shares.

Sale and transfer of shares

Share dealing is a complex area and specialist advice should be sought from solicitors, accountants and company law agencies.
Transfer and transmission of shares

Shares in a listed company are transferred through brokers using the Stock Exchange Euroclear service. However, in a private or unlimited company, shares are usually transferred by private agreement between the seller and buyer, subject to the company's rules and approval of the directors.

Certain taxes apply when you transfer or sell shares:

* If you are transferring shares yourself using a paper stock transfer form Stamp Duty may be payable when the value is over certain limits. See our guide on Stamp Duty on shares.

Re: Types of Share in business

Bearer shares: the owner is he who possesses them. They are easy to negotiate because there are no registry procedures to do at the issuing institutions.
Registered shares: They are assigned to a determined name of a person and the issuing institution maintains a registry of the shareholders.
Ordinary: they don’t have any preferential rights and enjoy of the classical rights.
