A share buyback is a purchase by a company of its own shares. They are normally undertaken in order to return cash to shareholders.

If a company wishes to buy back its shares it must follow the procedures set-out in the Companies Act 2006, including a requirement that the buyback is made pursuant to a contract approved by the company's shareholders.

Do I need help?

If your company is considering purchasing its own shares then you will need to consider whether a buyback is permitted under the Companies Act 2006. You will need to produce resolutions, make filings and draft documentation (including a buyback contract). You will also need to involve your auditors if the company intends to purchase shares out of capital.

Our Share Buyback service provides you with all the necessary advice and documentation to effect a share buyback. We provide clear and straightforward guidance, draft all of the required documentation and make the appropriate filings with Companies House.
