Transfer of Shares form (484C3)


How do I complete a Transfer of Shares?


The Transfer of Shares form is Form 484C3, and is accessible via the Company Profile (Menu > Companies > Search for Company and open full profile). Once you are in the full Company Profile, hover over the "Share Management" menu, and select "Form 484C3 Transfer of Shares":


A popup message with current Shareholdings will display, if these are not correct (prior to the transfer), select "Edit Registry" to resolve discrepancy. Alternatively, select "The Registry is Correct, Proceed" to proceed to the form:

Completing the form:

  • Form Details - Provides an overview of the Transfer of Shares process and requirements.

  • Company Details - Reflects the Company Name, ACN and an option to select whether the transfer is in response to an Annual Statement

  • Transfer Details - Allows you to enter the date of the Share Transfer (click here for details on when late fees will be incurred)

  • Transferor Details (Seller) - Allows you to select the Transferor from a list of existing Shareholders and the number of shares are to be transferred.
    • The Consideration Paid amount can be adjusted to reflect the amount paid for the Shares on transfer. This does not change the original issue price of the shares. Click here for more information on the Consideration Paid figure.
    • Select "Add Another Transferor" to add an additional Share Transfer.

  • Transferee Details (Buyer) - Allows you to select from a list of existing Shareholders, or add a new Shareholder for the Shares to be Transferred to.
    • If you selected to Transfer more than one parcel of shares, you will need to add Transferee(s) for each parcel of shares to be transferred.
    • Ensure the number of Shares entered in the Transferor page equals the total number entered in the Transferee page. You will not be able to progress if the figures do not match.
    • Only Individuals can be added as joint Shareholders. If you require a different combination of joint Shareholders, you will need to lodge the form directly with ASIC.
