How do I change my address?

How you update your address details depends on your individual circumstances. If you have a CHESS sponsored holding (prefixed with an 'X') you must change your address through your broker.

If you have an Issuer Sponsored Holding (prefixed with an 'I') then you can update your address details for Individual, Joint and Company holdings by logging in to your portfolio via www.linkmarketservices.com.au and selecting Update Address under the Communications section. This change can be applied to one or multiple holdings. 

For security reasons if a holding is valued at greater than $50,000 or relates to a deceased estate then you will not be able to update this online and you will need to download a Change of Address Form from the Forms section. 

If you are using the 'Single Holding' login then you will only be able to update your address details if you have an 'Individual' holding valued less than $50,000.

Do I need to advise the share registry if I have changed my name?
Yes. If you are a CHESS sponsored investor, you must change your name via your broker. If you are an issuer sponsored investor, you can change your name by navigating to www.linkmarketservices.com.au and completing a Name Correction Request and Indemnity Form (Name Correction) via the Forms section.

Please note that the share registry is unable to accept requests by facsimile, email or phone. 
 
The completed form should be completed and signed correctly and accompanied by relevant supporting documentation. If you are signing under a power of attorney, a certified copy of the original power of attorney must be lodged with the Share registrar for noting (if not already noted).

Supporting documentation requirements differ, depending on the reason for the change of name; 
  • Change of name by marriage - we require a certified copy of your marriage certificate; 
  • Change to maiden name - if you wish to revert to your maiden name, we require a certified copy of your marriage certificate; 
  • Change of name by Deed Poll - we require a certified copy of the deed poll; 
  • Change of Company Name - we require a certified copy of the Certificate of Registration of Change of Name
