How to produce share certificates

Share certificates are easy to create using our free share certificate template. We know that creating a share certificate manually each time can be slow and laborious so, as part of the Inform Direct company records management system, we’ve created a simple and FREE share certificate creation process. Read more about how to create branded share certificates below, or get started today to see how easy it can be to create and manage your company’s share certificates.

Create share certificates as part of completing share allotments or transfers


When you do an share allotment or transfer, you also have the option of creating a share certificate at the same time. As you’ll have entered any relevant details for the transaction itself, there’s no need to enter them again. Just assign a number for the share certificate and it’s ready to print and sign!

You can also forget the hassle of updating your registers. Rather than you needing to do it separately, Inform Direct will also:

  • Automatically update the register of members
  • Automatically update the register of transfers or allotments (as applicable)

Easily maintain a full log of share certificates


We keep a full record of all the certificates you’ve created so you no longer need to keep a list – helping you keep a full and accurate audit trail. You can see, at a glance, which certificates are active and which you’ve marked as cancelled.

You can create new certificates by clicking on “Add New Share Certificate”. In its turn, cancelling an existing certificate is as simple as pressing the red button next to the certificate details.

Create additional share certificates at any time


You may want to create certificates for transactions that happened a while ago. You may have been asked for a replacement certificate. Or you might just have been too busy to create the certificate when doing the share allotment or transfer. No problem – you can create certificates any time using the information the system already holds.
