Overview of an Instrument of Transfer

Importantly, an Instrument of Transfer is a document necessary for transferring the legal title of the shares.

Also, it is important to check stamping requirements and procedures under the relevant jurisdiction relating to an Instrument of Transfer.

Sometimes, stamping procedures may require an Instrument of Transfer to be executed offline (i.e. e-signature is not accepted).

Shares Transferred.  The details of the shares being transferred must be included, including the number of shares and purchase price.
