You use a share transfer form (aka a stock transfer form) to transfer shares in a company.
The form itself does not need to be registered at Companies House, but you do need to include the reference to the transfer when you do your annual Companies House filing called a Confirmation Statement.
Here, we show you a completed stock transfer form (using a general election-themed fictional example written on 5 December 2019). Copy the format when creating your own stock transfer form which you can download here or by searching on the Encyclawpedia).
For more information generally on how to transfer shares, read our short guide on transferring shares.
