CHF -SH06 - Notice Of Cancellation Of Shares
A purchase of own shares is when a company purchases shares in itself from an existing shareholder and the shares purchased are not redeemable shares. Please see " Own Share Purchase out of Capital – Guidance Notes " for more information.
There are several conditions that a private company must fulfil in order to be able to purchase its own shares.
Once the shares have been purchased, they will be treated as cancelled and Form SH06 must be filed with the Registrar of Companies within 28 days of the purchase. Failure to do so is an offence and the company and any officer of the company in default is liable to a fine if found guilty.
