Missing/Lost Share Certificates

Obtain duplicate share certificates, quickly and efficiently.

Take advantage of a lost share certificate service that will:

  • Obtain a letter of indemnity from the company registrar on your behalf.

Letters of indemnity are issued to minimize, potential financial loss caused by misuse of the original certificate.

  • Obtain a countersignature on your behalf. Your letter of indemnity will be sent to our supplier, together with a request for a quote.

A countersignature protects a company if the letter of indemnity signatory is unable to meet its requirements. The countersignature takes on possible liabilities. This is why a fee is charged.
