A private company limited by shares can change its status and become a public limited company. To re-register as a PLC, your company must have:

  • a paid up share capital of at least £12,500
  • at least two directors. The directors can also be members of the company, and one of them must be an individual person (not another company)
  • at least one company secretary on record with Companies House at all times to comply with the Companies Acts*.

We can guarantee that the re-registration of your company will be handled effectively and to the highest ISO standards. We will also take care of all the other formalities involved. Our team will provide legal advice on setting up and running a public limited company.

Using our expertise and knowledge of converting ltd companies into PLCs, we will manage the whole process so that you could concentrate on what’s really important to you – expanding your business. If you would like to discuss this service with us in more detail please contact us.

*We act as a company secretary to a large number of public limited companies. Please visit our company secretarial service for PLCs page to find out how we can help your organisation comply with the Companies Act and other regulations imposed on PLCs.

We can also provide a registered office address for your company.
