Under UK law, the Company is obliged to make its share register available to third parties upon payment of the appropriate statutory fee. Because of this, some shareholders may receive unsolicited mail. Shareholders in the UK who wish to limit the receipt of unsolicited mail should register with The Mailing Preference Service at www.mpsonline.org.uk or telephone +44 (0)845 703 4599. You may still, however, receive mail from organisations that do not subscribe to the service.
There is a growing trend for criminals to target personal information which may put your shareholding at risk. In order to protect yourself, you should consider the following precautions:
- Ensure all certificates are kept in a safe place or hold shares electronically in CREST;
- Keep correspondence from the Company’s registrar containing the shareholder reference number in a safe place, or destroy this information by shredding it;
- Shareholders who have their dividends mandated to their bank accounts should take particular care with tax vouchers as these contain details of their bank account number and sort code;
- If moving house, the Company’s registrar should be informed. If a letter is received from the Company’s registrar regarding a change of address and no move has taken place, the Company’s registrar should be informed;
- Dividend payment dates should be known in advance, particularly in the case of receiving dividend cheques. Dividends received electronically may reduce the risk of fraud.
