Whey would anyone want to sell - or buy - such a thing? The new shareholder s aren't directors or even employees as far as I can tell.
My only thought is that it might be a sneaky way to pass money to people wi thout involving NIC or possibly VAT on services.
Or could there be some other reason?
I don't think I should publish the name of the company here, but will if so meone asks me privately.
