You can appoint (add) new company shareholders at any point after incorporation.

Existing shares must be transferred or sold by a current member to the new person.
Alternatively, you can increase your company's share capital by allotting (issuing) new shares.
Companies House needs to be informed about a shareholder leaving or changing at any point, or when members join or leave the firm, Transfers of shares should also be reported at the same time.

The full names and contact addresses of the first company shareholders, or 'subscribers,' are disclosed on the public record.

Any person who joins after company formation will only need to provide their name and details of their shares unless they are also a person with significant control.
The director's responsibility is to ensure that Companies House is notified of these changes and that the company's statutory register of members is updated accordingly.
