Transferring your shares certificates to us
If you wish to transfer your share certificates into your Trading Account simply print off and fill in a Crest transfer form (53 KB) and then send it, recorded delivery, in with your share certificate(s) to the address above.
You cannot transfer existing share holdings directly into an ISA. However, we can help you sell them and re-purchase them within the ISA through a process called this is called BED & ISA.
Bed and ISA guide
Did you know you can take advantage of your ISA allowance without having to subscribe any new money by using a process known as "Bed and ISA."
You simply instruct us to sell shares you already hold and transfer the proceeds (up to the annual allowance limit) to your Stocks & Shares ISA - the proceeds are then used to buy back your shares. Please note that when buying the same shares back there will be a small difference in price due to the bid/offer spread, and government stamp duty will apply on the purchase - this means you will not be able to buy back the exact same number of shares.
If you hold shares in a Trading Account all you need to do is call the trading line on 01892 700 802 with details of which shares you would like to Bed and ISA from your account and we will then execute the orders and you will receive contract notes confirming the trade details.
If you hold the share certificate(s), send them to us, together with a signed Crest transfer form (53 KB) (one for each holding) and a letter with your instructions - please ensure you open a Stocks & Shares ISA before sending us your certificates.
See below for guidance on how to complete the Crest Transfer form.
First you will need to open a Stocks & Shares ISA and then follow the 'existing customer' instructions.
If you would like any more information, please call 01892 700 802 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
