Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.
I suggest you start by cleaning up your corporate records. First check your original corporate minutes. There should be a board resolution authorizing the sale of stock to you as the founder of the business. It is usually in the corporate minute book you got when your formed your corporation. If that was not done then create a set of minutes with you as the director authorizing the corporation to issue you stock for the amount you initially invested. The issuance of the stock gets recorded in the corporate minute book which is part of the corporate minute book that has the stock certificates. You then take the stock certificate that was issued to you and sign it on the back. On the front of the stock certicate you just signed mark in block letters CANCELLED. Go back to the corporate minute book and get the number of stock certificates you will need to give your daughter(s) the 24.5% you plan to give them plus one certificate for yourself. If for example you originally had two hundred shares and you are giving 24.5% to one daughter. On certificate would be 49 shares and the remaining 151 shares would be made to you. In your corporate records you would reflect that you transferred 49 shares to your daughter and reissued 151 shares to yourself. That is it. There is no filing that needs to be made anywhere.
