Learn how to find the shareholders of UK companies

Find UK private company owners using persons with significant control

In April 2016 the UK government introduced a law that requires all companies incorporated in the UK to disclose any people with significant control (PSCs).

This rule requires that anyone who holds (directly or indirectly) more than 25% of the shares of a company must register this on companies house. This is very useful for finding the largest owners / shareholders of a company.

The significant controller doesn't have to be a person, it could be another company, a trust or a group of people acting in concert.

Often there are multiple layers of ownership for a private company, particularly when it is receiving investments from institutional investors. In these scenarios you often see bidco, midco and topco in the names of the companies to denote the different layers.
