Example Formal Offer to Sell Shares

We cannot sell shares to you any other way, so please ensure you have read and understood our Formal Offer.

This is an example only, and should you request to buy from us, please ensure you read our Formal Offer carefully, as it occasionally has to be updated or includes specific information about your purchase.

We offer to sell shares from our own family shareholdings.
We may afterwards buy back from other sellers.
We are not licensed to trade shares as a Broker, so instead follow HMRC recommended procedures for buying and selling shares as individuals.

This is known as ‘Same Day’ and ‘Bed and Breakfasting’, and full details can be found at the HMRC website.

Purchases of £1,000 or less will usually be in your ComputerShare account 7 to 28 days after the sale date.

Purchases of over £1,000 will take between 6 and 15 weeks after the Sale Date.
The delay is the time required by HMRC to process the required Stamp Duty paperwork.
We have no control over the time they take.
They advise up to three weeks but we have known it to take more than 12 weeks.

Please check the ComputerShare details we have for you, and let us know if any changes are required.
If you have not yet supplied them, please do so as soon as possible.
We cannot complete the paperwork without them, and the share transfer may be delayed.

{Payment Details – UK & International – we accept various currencies.}

International buyers often find Transferwise or other agencies to be cheaper than their own banks.
If you are considering using TransferWise and do not yet have an account with them, please use my referral link.

Please message us as soon as you have made payment.
When your payment arrives we will send you confirmation of receipt.

On or shortly after the Sale Date, we will send you a scan of the signed Stock Transfer Form.
It is your proof of ownership of the shares until they appear in your ComputerShare account.

For Purchases of £1,000 or less

On the day following the Sale date we will post the STF to ComputerShare Investor Services PLC. 
The shares will usually be in your ComputerShare account in 7 to 21 days after the Sale Date.

For Purchases of more than £1,000

We will send the required documentation to HMRC with the Stamp Duty payment, and then finally to ComputerShare Investor Services PLC.
The process will take between 6 and 15 weeks.
Emailing us after 6 weeks will in no way speed up HMRC returning the forms to us 

We will keep you informed of the process at all times.

The Sale process will be deemed completed once the shares are in your ComputerShare account.

To gain access to the BrewDog Investors Forum, update your balance, and take full advantage of your shareholder benefits you will need to email equitypunks@brewdog.com attaching a copy of your new Share Certificate.
Tell them you purchased the shares from C0000000089.
Unfortunately, this is not automatic, as BrewDog currently has no direct link to ComputerShare account balances.

Changing your mind

We fully understand that there are many reasons people may need to cancel their purchase, and it will be a really big help to us if you tell us as soon as you can.
We accept cancellations by email up to 11:59pm on the day before the Sale Date.

We will refund your payment in full (less any bank payment charges, if any) as soon as possible.
We cannot accept cancellations later than this, as we will have entered into legal contracts to buy back shares from the investors we are selling for.

If you have read this far, congratulations and thank you!  I’m sure most people don’t

Please message us if you have any queries.
