Can a limited company have shares without profit rights and/or voting rights?
So unlike the rules before 1 October 2012 it is now possible to decide which right will be linked to which shares. This means that you can give a shareholder only profit rights for example if he just wants to be seen as an investor and not as somebody who wants to be involved with the management of the company. Or you can give a shareholder only a voting right and not a profit right if this person should be involved with the management of the company but does not require a share of the profit, for example a parent who steps back in favour of his child who will take over the company.
So you can determine how to structure the company. More flexibilty, more complications.
