Companies Act 2006

Section 820: Interest in shares: general

1142.This section re-enacts the definition of “interest in shares” in section 208 (as applied by section 212(5)) of the 1985 Act for the purposes of Part 22 of this Act. An “interest in shares” is widely defined as an interest of any kind whatsoever in the shares, and includes beneficial ownership as well as direct ownership. The courts have described this wide definition as being designed “to counter the limitless ingenuity of persons who prefer to conceal their interests behind trusts and corporate entities” (re TR Technology Investment Trust plc [1988] BCLC 256 at 261).
