A share buyback is often (but not always) used during shareholder exits and is an effective way to extract cash from the company to realise the value of the shareholding or alternatively to return excess cash to a shareholder. Share buyback transactions can be highly tax-efficient but must comply with the strict provisions of Part 18 of the Companies Act 2006. Any breach of such provisions will result in the transaction being void which means it will be treated as it never happened i.e., the seller will be treated as if they continue to own the shares and the payment for the shares is liable to be returned to the company (which the company might find it difficult to recover). In addition, every officer of the company will commit a criminal offence. In other words, getting things wrong can have serious adverse legal and tax implications.

How we can help with the Settlement of Disputes: Settling a dispute on acceptable terms can save you and your business a lot of time, money and stress. A key ingredient to a successful settlement is creating solutions that are acceptable to all sides to the dispute. We understand how to deal with the pressure of a legal dispute, when it is appropriate to apply it on the other parties and when the other party is trying to apply it. It is essential to ensure that the wording of the negotiated terms of settlement reflect the scope of the claims that are settled. A common mistake is forgetting to ensure that a settlement is made on an “all claims” basis, rather than merely setting the dispute based on the existing factual situation. We will discuss and advise on the extent of the settlement terms to make sure that the wording has the intended meaning.
