Dividends Recovery


Dividends and other distributions often remain unclaimed by shareholders, sometimes for years.

Share Data can recover these outstanding dividends, be they cash or scrip, together with the corresponding tax vouchers and any interest that may have accrued.

Furthermore, Share Data can prepare dividends schedules for current and historic tax years which may be required 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 Stake 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.
