SH19 Statement of capital

Details

This form can be used as a statement of capital by a private limited company reducing its capital supported by a solvency statement, or for a private or public limited company reducing its capital supported by a court order.

The continuation pages are optional. Use them if you need to provide more details.

Read the guidance for more information on share capital.

It’s taking much longer than usual to process paper documents sent by post because of coronavirus (COVID-19).

How to send your form to us

  1. Complete your form and any supporting documents.

  2. Save your completed form and any supporting documents to your device.

  3. Upload your supporting documents and SH19 form and send them to us online.

If you need associated reduction of capital documents to be processed together, you should:

  • upload supporting documents first, one at a time (the resolution, solvency statement and statement by directors as applicable)

  • upload the SH19 form last, after you have uploaded the supporting documents

You cannot use the online service if your SH19 form is supported by a court order. If your form is supported by a court order, you must send all documents to us by post.

Standard or same day service

You have the option of a standard or same day service when you upload an SH19 online.

The standard service costs £10. The SH19 is processed within 10 to 14 days.

The same day service costs £50. The SH19 is processed on the same day if we receive it by 11am. You must also upload the relevant resolution and solvency statement by 11am. If you upload the SH19 and relevant documents after 11am, we will process them the next working day.

Refunds

If your document is rejected, we will refund your fee to the original payment method. This can take up to 7 days.
