Public Limited Company Package

A Public Limited Company (PLC) is considered best for medium to large companies, hoping to offer their shares on the stock exchange. This is a great way to acquire share capital for the company, through new and existing investors. For a UK PLC to trade, it must have at least £50,000 of share capital, of which a quarter (£12,500) must have been paid up.

FAQ’s

While both companies have shares, an LTD’s shares can only be given to select people, whereas a PLC has the option of letting the public buy its shares. Though it doesn’t have to, many PLC's put their shares on the London Stock Exchange.

To start a PLC, you will need:

  • 2 Directors – These can be any person or corporate body, and can be the same person.
  • A UK Registered Office – You can use our Registered Office Service in the prestigious Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham.
  • A Memorandum and Articles of Association – This sets out the rules and regulations of the company and states each guarantor with their agreement to become members. We offer a template Memorandum and Articles of Association to all Companies999 customers.
  • A Trading Certificate – All UK PLC's must have a trading certificate in order to start trading. This declares that the company has £50,000 of share capital and a quarter of that amount has been paid up.
  • A Qualified Secretary – This can be a solicitor, barrister or chartered accountant with 3-5 years previous experience of a public company secretary. The Director of the company can also use their own discretion and appoint an individual without experience, if they can work the role required of a company secretary.

A PLC can be incorporated without the quarter share capital paid up. However, if you want to start trading you must pay otherwise you may receive a fine and your company could be struck off.

Every PLC is required to apply for a trading certificate before starting its business activities. This is called a SH50 application form, which must be delivered to Companies House. To qualify for a trading certificate, you must have at least £50,000 of share capital, of which a quarter (£12,500) must have been paid up. If you would like a trading certificate, please contact us on 0121 236 8560.
