This Stock Transfer Form Template is suitable to record the transfer of stocks or shares in a single private or public company from one party to another. It is also suitable to register the transfer with the company whose shares are being transferred. If you wish to transfer the shares or stocks in more than one company or use a document which allows you to have more control over the terms of the transfer you should use our Share Transfer Agreement Template, or alternatively use several stock transfer forms (one for each type of share or stock being transferred). If the company registry in your state or country requires the execution of a standard form Stock Transfer Form then this template may not be suitable for registration with the registrar and you may have to sign an additional document. Even if this document will not be accepted by the company registrar in your country or state it should still be sufficient to create a binding contract of sale between the two parties.
Stock Transfer Form Template
Full Name of Undertaking (“the Company”)
Address of Undertaking
Full Description of Security
[ORDINARY SHARES OF 1USD EACH]
Number and Amount of Shares
Those Securities Numbered
[101-200 (IF THE SHARES ARE NOT NUMBERED THEN YOU CAN REMOVE THIS ROW OR FILL THIS BOX WITH “NOT APPLICABLE”)]
Name and Address of the Registered Holder(s)
I/We hereby transfer the above security in the name of the Transferor to the Transferee named below for the Consideration set out below and request the making of the necessary entries in the registers of the company.
[SIGNATURE OF TRANSFEROR]
Name and address of the person to whom the security is being transferred.
Date of Transfer
If you are transferring fully paid shares then you can use this form as it is. If you are transferring part paid shares then you must add another above “Date of Transfer” which says “SIGNATURE OF TRANSFEREE”. This is because the transfer of partly paid shares confers an obligation on the Transferee (similar to the assignment of a loan).
Include some cost in the “Consideration” box. If the shares are being transferred as a gift then you can list 10 USD as the cost. This is because in many states and countries a contract requires some detriment or loss on behalf of both parties (even though it may be a nominal amount).
