Frequently asked questions

A company can change its shareholdings by:

  • Share transfer: One shareholder sells his/her shares to another party. The other party will pay the shareholder the purchase price as they own the shares. 
  • Share issue: The company decides to create new shares and  give them to a new or existing shareholder.

Transfer of shares is one of the most common change in company shareholdings. If you would like to transfer shares, follow the steps below: 

Step 1 – After you’ve logged in, select ‘Start new form’ from the left hand menu

Step 2 – Select ‘Changes to company details’ (484) from the list of forms

Step 3 – Select ‘Change to members register’ from the list of changes

Step 4 – Select the type of change you are making to the member register

Step 5 – Review the changes and complete the declaration to submit your transaction

The company needs to:

  • issue a share certificate to the shareholder receiving the shares;
  • updates its members register to reflect the share transfer/issuance. 
  • notify ASIC about the change within 28 days. 

Depending on your shareholders agreement and company constitution, you must include “authority to issue the shares” in your share issuance. At the very least, the investor should sign a share application form. This is a one-page document under which they agree to be issued with shares and hold the shares subject to the company constitution.

If you would like us to update your shareholding, the cost is $165 including GST.
