Common shareholders are granted six rights: voting power, ownership, the right to transfer ownership, dividends, the right to inspect corporate documents, and the right to sue for wrongful acts.
How do you find out a company’s profit?
A company’s profit and loss (P&L) statement shows the companies revenues, costs, expenses, and net profit for a certain period. The P&L statement can be found on a company’s website and is one of the financial statements that public companies are required to issue by law to shareholders.
How do you find a company’s profits?

Direct costs can include purchases like materials and staff wages. Indirect costs are also called overhead costs, like rent and utilities.
Shareholders and directors have two completely different roles in a company. The shareholders (also called members) own the company by owning its shares and the directors manage it. Unless the articles say so (and most do not) a director does not need to be a shareholder and a shareholder has no right to be a director.
Who owns a Ltd company?
A limited company is owned by one or more ‘members’. In a limited by shares company, members are known as ‘shareholders’. In a limited by guarantee company, members are known as ‘guarantors’.
A company limited by shares must have at least one shareholder, who can be a director. If you’re the only shareholder, you’ll own 100% of the company. There’s no maximum number of shareholders.
The real value of a share is determined by the value of the company. For example, you could issue 100 shares, each of which has a nominal value of £1. The company’s share capital would only be £100, but the market value of the shares could be £300,000 if it were sold.
