How can I gift shares to someone that isn't my spouse?

The gifting of shares form will need to be completed by both parties, existing holder agreeing to transfer the shares and recipient agreeing to accept the shares. Once received the transfer process will take approximately 5 working days, depending on the security to be transferred.

Please note
: We can only gift shares between Selftrade Dealing Accounts.
The Gifting of Shares form is located on the Forms and Guides webpage
