Introduction

This course provides an explanation of the law relating to share capital under the Companies Act 2006, together with relevant amendments to this legislation. During the course, you will look at some practical examples of the law in action from a private company perspective. Subject to delegate interest, some issues specific to companies trading on UK stock exchanges may also be discussed.

If you advise companies and or their directors on anything to do with shares, share capital and/or dividends, this course is for you. Delegates will receive full course notes and will consider sample resolution and minutes wording for many of these transactions.

Please note that this course does not cover the detailed tax or accounting aspects of share capital.
