We provide a postal share dealing facility for Centrica plc shareholders who hold shares in certificated form. You may sell some or all of your shares through the WH Ireland postal share dealing service at a preferential commission rate.
Commission charges levied on the sale of shares in Centrica plc held in certificated form are:-
1% on the first £5,000 of sale proceeds
0.5% on any excess
Subject to a minimum charge of £30
A flat £1 levy on transactions over £10,000 in value is payable to the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers.
Should you require your settlement proceeds to be paid to an overseas bank, any related charges will be deducted from the payment. Please note that there may be a slight delay in crediting your account depending on the time it takes for the receiving bank to process the payment. Please call the helpline for further information
Please download and complete the Application Form (link below) and send it to us, together with your share certificate(s) and the required money laundering documentation.
Once we have received your instructions and sold your shares, a contract note confirming the details of the transaction will be mailed to you, normally within two working days of the sale taking place.
On settlement day, payment of the net proceeds will ordinarily be made via the BACS system direct into your bank account. Please note that we are unable to transfer funds into a building society account using this method. Payments via the BACS system usually take 2 working days to clear into your account and we can only make payment into an account bearing the same name as the shareholder.
