Dividends Recovery

Unlock value from forgotten international share certificates

Shareholders often leave dividends and other distributions unclaimed for extended periods. Share Data can recover these outstanding dividends, whether they are in cash or scrip, along with the relevant tax vouchers and any accrued interest. Additionally, we can prepare dividend schedules for both current and historic tax years, which may be essential for Income Tax purposes.

Note: In Australia, when an estate has been inactive for some time, uncollected dividends must be paid to the Australian Securities & Investment Commission. Prior to 1991, uncollected monies were dealt with at the State Level instead of the Central Commission. So, if you have to claim back dividends due before 1991, you have to trace the uncollected fund from each individual State.

We can also acquire crucial US Death Certificates containing essential details about the deceased. For tailored pricing on replacing certificates abroad, reach out to us for a customized quote, as costs may vary based on the jurisdiction.
