The other thing to think about is that even if you have 4 shareholders which are 4 different people that you know and asked to hold the shares, you are technically still controller of the company even if you aren't legally holding the shares. The 4 people are effectively holding them on bare trust for you, in a way.

By not notifying UK Government / Companies House that you are a person with significant control is going against the spirit of the law (key word is control and not "holding legal title to shares). Yes it's not really a huge deal but if your business becomes huge and they decide to come after you, they would probably make a big example out of you to scare everyone else!

So say we are 4 Seychelles companies, each own 25% of the the UK company, then we would not be anywhere online to see? I mean the UBO of the Seychelles companies?

Correct, but you need a nominee director. Directors and secretaries are publicly visible also. If you're caught regarding the 4 Seychelles companies being shareholders, you're technically not complying with the law as you are the only UBO for the whole 100% of the company.

UK companies can have corporate directors (eg. Seychelles IBCs), but there needs to be at least one natural (real) person who is a director of the UK company.
Do you know if this could be a nominee director?

Do you think 4 llc usa or 4 ibc seychelles are better shareholders?
which UK incorporation agents would you use.
some asked me to verify the director's passport via webcam.

Yes it can, you can place a nominee along with the IBC. Or if you have the right contacts and a big enough deposit you can just use the company and bank offshore.

as @<<snippet>> suggest you can think about taking this to the mentor group for more detailed answers...

On another subject, nominee directors are completely useless now in the UK.
You can still use them and have set as directors of the company, however it is also required to provide something similar to the UBO of the company - which is called Person with Significant Control (PSC) in the UK.
The PSC could be there for plenty of reasons and those could be possession of percentage of shares, but also other reasons - like simply having voting rights but there are other categories too.
It is very tricky, if possible at all to get away without it.

I needed to go through a process where there was a big chance of the Companies House records being checked in a detail and for whatever reason I wanted to achieve I didn't want to be listed as the owner of the company. After consulting with my accountants and my lawers it's been agreed that I would change the companies house records myself and make an honest mistake where when editing the PSC, I would untick my shares and tick something else. This would create an image of the company having plenty of shareholders with me having just voting rights (or whatever we agreed to set there at the time).

The day the process I was worried about finished I have corrected my mistake as advised by my consultants.

The PSC records are becoming more and more important in the UK making standard nominee services useless.

This obviously looks differently when doing things more the mentor group way, but then again one needs to be conscious about overlaps and plan things properly.

I understand that if the UK company has 4 shareholders at 25% each they are not listed in the PSC.
Now if the 4 shareholders are 4 LLC USA companies, it is also economical.
Deep down these 4 companies should be controlled by different people.
The problem is not to create the shareholder LLC USA company or IBC seychell (much more expensive) but to find a director assigned to the UK company

Tried looking for it but can't find it.
This needs to be done in Mentor Group
