When transferring Australian shares, please make sure you have your Holder Identification Number (HIN) handy, it will be shown on any communications issued by your broker.

Issuer-sponsored transfer

Applies only to Australian shares transfers, for when you hold your shares with the registrar, usually as the result of an IPO, SPP or Employee Share Plan. Please make sure you have your Security Reference Number (SRN) handy, it will be shown on a holding statement issued by the registrar.

What happens next?

Your shares will appear in the 'Open Positions' panel within the platform as soon as they have been transferred.

How long does it take?

There's only one short form we need you to complete, and then we'll take care of the rest.

The majority of transfers will be complete within 2 weeks. However, this can vary as transfers are dependent on the transferring broker and beyond our control. You may be out of the market for a period while the transfer takes place.
