Share buy back overview

The other shareholders may not want to, or may not have the funds to buy the shares from the departing shareholder. A number of conditions must be met for the buy-back to be valid under company law. The way in which the buy-back is structured can have a significant impact on the departing shareholder’s tax bill. Where the conditions are satisfied, the proceeds from the buy-back are taxed as a capital gain; otherwise, the proceeds are taxed as a dividend. Companies House and HMRC must be notified of the buy-back.
