I am instructed on an estate which includes a shareholding quoted on the New York Stock Exchange. I understand I require a Federal Transfer Certificate to transfer and subsequently sell the shareholding but this seems quite difficult to obtain where the deceased’s US estate is worth more than $60,000 as at the date of death.
Does anyone have any experience in dealing with American shareholdings and obtaining a Federal Transfer Certificate?
Is anyone able to provide the names of any companies they have instructed to obtain a Federal Transfer Certificate?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
