An SH01 is an official form that gives notice about newly-issued shares. When a company issues new stock, it needs to file an SH01 form with Companies House. This form must be filed annually.
The form includes information such as the name of the issuing company, the number of shares being issued, the date of issue, the price per share, and the amount of money raised.
Companies are required to report the issuance of new shares to Companies House within seven days of the transaction taking place. If you receive an email notification about an SH01 form, make sure to read it thoroughly because there could be important information included.
When should you fill out a SH01 form?
The law requires every company to submit a Return of Allotment of Shares (SH01) form to Companies House within 30 days of completing a transaction involving the transfer of shares. This includes transactions where the number of shares transferred is less than 10,000. If the transaction involves more than 10,000 shares, the company must file the form within 30 days of completing the transaction.
A company must file its return within one month after it makes the allotment. However, there are exceptions to this rule. For example, if a company files a notice under section 593(1)(a) of the Companies Act 2006, it does not have to file its return of allotments of shares until 60 days after filing the notice.
If a company fails to file its return of allottees within the required period, it commits an offence. Section 794 of the Companies Act 2006 provides that anyone who acts or purports acts in any capacity on behalf a company commits an offence by failing to file a return of allotment of stock within the prescribed period. An SH01 should be submitted within 30 days after the end of the relevant period.
Section 795 of the Companies Act 2006 states that an officer of a company who fails to file a return of allottee within the required period shall be guilty of an offence. In addition, the penalty for such an offence is a fine up to level 3 on the standard scale.
How do I send in a SH01?
To file online, you must first register with Companies House. This involves providing basic information about yourself and your company. You should receive an email confirming your registration within 24 hours. If you don’t receive it, check your spam folder.
Once you are registered, you can log into Companies House and complete the registration form. When you’re done, you’ll receive an authentication code via email.
You can now login to the site and submit your form.

Section 2: Allotment dates
The allotment date determines how many shares are allotted per day. This value must be specified when creating the share offer. If no value is specified, the default value is one share per day.
When issuing shares over a period longer than one day, use section 2 to specify the allotment dates. For example, if you want to allocate 10,000 shares every Wednesday and Friday for three months, enter the following values into section 2:
Wednesday – 3/1/2019
Friday – 3/3/2019
Thursday – 4/2/2019
If you do not specify the allotment dates, the default value is the same as the allotment date for the first day of the offering.
Section 3: Shares allotted
Shares are securities that represent ownership in a corporation. They are used to raise money for companies and individuals. There are different types of shares, including ordinary shares, preference shares, bonus shares, special warrants, convertible bonds and preferred stock. You must complete Section 3 of Form D to report the total number of shares held in each class of shares.
Section 4: Statement of capital
The UK government has announced changes to the way businesses are required to report their financial data. Starting April 15th, 2018, every company incorporated in the UK will now be required to submit a “statement of capital,” detailing how much money each class of shareholder owns, and what the overall value of the company is. This includes the amount of cash the company holds, plus any debt it owes, and the value of any property owned.
Companies House will check whether the statements submitted meet the requirements of the law. If they do, they’ll publish the documents online. Any mistakes in the information will be corrected. But if there are any errors, the company could face fines up to £20,000 per day.
Section 5: Report on the amount of money (prescribed particulars of rights attached to shares)
This section provides information about the rights attached in respect of the shares. These include full voting, dividend, distribution, redemption and other rights. Redeemable preference shares do not have any voting rights.
Section 6: Signature
A signature is required on any legal document issued by an organization. There are three types of signatures:
Handwritten signatures are usually used for documents that require a person’s personal approval such as contracts, agreements, etc. These are typically signed by hand by the signatory.
Electronic signatures are digital representations of a person’s handwriting. They are used for documents where it is impractical to obtain the original signature. For example, e-signatures are commonly used on web forms because they allow people to complete transactions without having to print out and mail physical copies of the form.
Digital signatures are used for online transactions. This type of signature is generated by software running on a computer system. Digital signatures are often used for online banking, credit card purchases, and other financial transactions.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Corporation or Business?
When a company or LLP hires a company instead of a person to be an officer, this is called a “corporate entity.”
What kind of information does a SH01 Form need?
It’s a good idea to round up all the information you’ll need to fill in the form before you get started. Most of the time, the SH01 Form needs:
Your business license number
Types of shares given out
Date of distribution
The shares’ currency, such as GBP or EUR.
Count of shares
The stock’s face value.
How much was paid or owed per share
A statement of capital that is up-to-date
You won’t need to include the new shareholders’ details in the SH01 Form, only the shares themselves. The information about the shareholders will be on your next confirmation statement. If you want Companies House to know about new shareholders faster, you can send them an early confirmation statement.
