Updating the Share Allotment Table

Question

How can I remove the "Allotment Issue" banner from appearing and correct the Share Allotment Table?

How do I add a share/certificate number or issue date?

Answer

When a Company displays an "Allotment Issue" banner this means there is a discrepancy between what ASIC have recorded for the Shareholdings, and what NowInfinity is displaying. Resolution will depend on the underlying issue.

The Share Number will populate at the Certificate Number when downloading a Share Certificate.

The most common cause of allotment issues is that multiple share change forms were lodged at the same time. It is strongly recommended to avoid this and lodge the forms one at a time only after the first has been processed.

Note: You may need to take multiple actions against the same Shareholder and/or the same actions against multiple Shareholders to resolve all allotment issues.

Locating the Shares view

  1. Navigate to Menu > Companies > open the Company Profile
  2. Change the drop-down box in top right-hand corner from "Main" to "Shares"

If the ASIC figures are incorrect:

    • Cancellation of Shares not reported: complete form 484C1
    • Issue of Shares not reported: completed form 484C2
    • Transfer of Shares not reported: complete form 484C3
    • Error previously reported: compete a form 492
