Issuer-sponsored shares are shares that you own directly from a company, and they are managed by the company's registry. You don't need a special account with a broker to own or trade these shares. The company's registry keeps a record of who owns them, and they usually send you things like dividend payments and voting information directly.
An SRN stands for Securityholder Reference Number. It is a unique number assigned to an investor or shareholder by a share registry or financial institution. The SRN is used to identify and track the ownership of shares in a particular company. It is typically found on a Holding or Dividend Statement and is essential for conducting transactions related to those shares, such as selling them or receiving dividend payments.

You can find your Securityholder Reference Number (SRN) on your holding or dividend statement.

If you do not currently have any of these documents, please request a copy directly from the share registry.

An individual account is held by a single investor, allowing them to independently buy and sell shares. In this type of account, gains and losses are typically subject to the individual's personal tax rate. It is a common choice for investors who prefer full control over their investments.

A joint account is jointly owned by two or more individuals, enabling them to collectively make investment decisions and share responsibilities for the account. It allows joint account holders to collaborate on investment activities. The taxation of gains and losses may vary based on the joint ownership structure, and it's important for joint account holders to establish clear agreements regarding the account. 

If you would like to sell shares held in a joint account,  please email us at support@sharesalesdirect.com.au or call us at 1300 092 575.

An SMSF account is associated with a self-managed superannuation fund, a retirement savings vehicle managed by individuals or trustees on behalf of members. These accounts are used to invest the fund's assets, including shares, with the goal of growing retirement savings. SMSFs are subject to specific regulatory requirements and tax considerations, and trustees must adhere to strict compliance rules.

If you would like to sell shares held by a SMSF, please email us at support@sharesalesdirect.com.au or call us at 1300 092 575.

A company account is registered in the name of a corporation, allowing companies to buy and sell shares for business or investment purposes. Companies can use this type of account to manage their share portfolios. The tax treatment of gains and losses in company accounts may differ from individual accounts, and corporate regulations apply.

If you would like to sell shares held in a company account, please email us at support@sharesalesdirect.com.au or call us at 1300 092 575.

A trust account is associated with a trust entity, often used for specific investment or financial purposes. Trusts can hold and trade shares on behalf of beneficiaries or for the trust's objectives. The tax implications and legal structure of trust accounts can vary based on the type of trust, such as family trusts or discretionary trusts. Trust accounts serve unique financial goals and are subject to trust-specific considerations and benefits.

If you would like to sell shares held in a trust account, please email us at support@sharesalesdirect.com.au or call us at 1300 092 575.
