UK Shares Transfer & Sale Service

Our UK Share Transfer & Sale service is divided into four steps:

  • Validation and replacement of share certificates if missing;
  • Forms preparation ready for client signature;
  • Submission of the signed forms to registrars/brokers;
  • Once re-issued the share certificates are mailed to you or sold through our brokers, payment is made to a bank account of your choice.

Please be aware that when you sell shares, you may be obligated to pay Capital Gains Tax on any profits you’ve earned.

Dividends Recovery

We identify the validity and value of old 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.

Have you lost a share certificate with a value in excess of £50,000?

Share Data can help you get a valid duplicate certificate, regardless of the shares’ value, even if it’s over £50,000.

Our service fee is usually around 1% of the shares’ value on the missing certificate, providing a cost-effective solution.
