Solicitors in Essex & London
Whether a company is looking to return surplus cash to its shareholders or to fund a shareholder exit, a share buyback can offer an effective solution; our commercial legal team in Essex and London are experts in this area of business law.
The regime is governed by the Companies Act 2006 and although some leniency is allowed for smaller transactions, the rules must be followed to avoid an unlawful transaction. A specific distinction is made in the process depending on whether the transaction is funded out of distributable profits or out of the company’s capital.
Our legal specialists in Essex and London can guide you through the various stages required for the share buyback and returns of value, advise on timing, prepare documentation and attend to all filing requirements to ensure that the transaction proceeds smoothly and in accordance with the prevailing legislation.
If you would like further legal advice on share buybacks and returns of value, contact our company and commercial law team in Essex and London for a free, no-obligation initial consultation. We offer telephone meetings alongside face-to-face discussions and are happy to meet with yourselves onsite at your own business premises or at any of our five offices located across Essex and in London.
