Share Certificate Template

A pre-made certificate used when shares are either transferred or issued to a new shareholder for UK Ltd companies

A share certificate accredits the named person as a company member. The class and number of shares they own provides proof that they have access to said shares and prevents the risk of the shareholder's name being fraudulently removed. Despite the certificate, shares will still need to be transferred correctly and the details of the new shareholder still needs to be added to the member register. Companies Act state that an organisation must create a share certificate for a shareholder within two months of the transfer date.

The capitalised letters within squared brackets indicate where you should both remove and fill in with the correct information.
