Share Capital for an overseas company!

Share Capital for an overseas company!


Can someone tell me if there are any requirements for an Overseas co having a branch in UK to issue share capital for the UK branch. Does it necessary to issue share for the UK branch.  UK branch has been registered with Co House but I could not find any share capital on the co house website. 

Shall I assume there is no requirement for the branch to issue shares?

Do the co need to file accounts with the companies house?

How can a branch issue shares?  Only the company itself can issue shares.

Yes - the overseas company's accounts do need to be filed at Companies House as set out in Chapter 3 of the Companies House guidance GPO1.  I suggest that you should read through all the guidance.
