Antwerp Arms Association Ltd Community Shares – A Quick Guide

Benefits

Most shareholders are entitled to claim Social Investment Tax Relief off their Income Tax bill (please see the HMRC website).

If you hold 4 shares, you will be entitled to get interest (see below).

If you hold 10 shares you will get a card to give you a 10% discount off drinks.

Holders of 20 or more shares are Patrons of the Association and are entitled to have a plaque over the bar.

Selling Shares

The Association is not yet in a position to buy back shares. When funds are available, the Committee and the Annual Members’ Meeting will need to approve rules. Shares may only be transferred on death or bankruptcy.

Interest on Shares

If the Association makes a profit in a particular year, the committee may decide to pay interest on the shares. This needs to be approved by the Annual Members’ Meeting.

The maximum interest that can be paid at present would be about 4%. Shareholders may opt not to collect their interest, in which case the money will be used for community purposes.

A dividend of 2.5% was declared for 2016-17 but there was no profit in other years and so no dividend was declared. The accounts for the year to 30 April 2019 will be prepared during the summer.

Rules

Legal details relating to the Community Shares are contained in the Society’s Rules. This guide is based on those rules.
