Sales proceeds

If you sell shares, a cheque for the proceeds, less any applicable charges, will normally be issued within 3 business days after the trade provided we have received all the documentation we have requested from you. Otherwise we will issue the cheque 1 business day after we have received the required documentation. If you are selling shares in a non-Link Administered Company, this can take at least 10 days from your order being placed.

Sale proceed cheques will be made payable to the registered holder of the shares – where shares are held in joint names, the cheque will be payable to all named holders – and sent to the registered address shown on our records at the time your instructions are processed.

If you have misplaced a cheque or have a payment that is out of date then this can be reissued for you. We do not charge for this service.

Please enclose any out of date cheques that you have and a cheque to cover the fee (made payable to Link Market Services Trustees Limited). The replacement will be processed and sent to you within 5-7working days.
