What you need to know about English grants of probate
If a company is incorporated in the Channel Islands, Scotland or the Isle of Man, your English Grant of probate will need to be resealed in those Islands or in Scotland.
If a company is incorporated in the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands, registrars frequently ask for English Grants to be resealed therein, even if the shares of that company are quoted on the London Stock Exchange or on AIM.
What you need to know about US shares
If a company is incorporated in the USA or Canada, you will usually be required to obtain a Medallion Guarantee Stamp.
Know that Share Data can obtain a Medallion Guarantee on your behalf and have it affixed to the appropriate documentation for you.
If the value of your English assets is less than £10,000
Some registrars use the small estate indemnity procedure if the value of the assets in England is small, usually less than £10,000. Take advantage of this procedure and you will find registration of death and the issue of new share certificates much easier.
