Share Dealing Service
We offer a low cost dealing service through Capita Share Dealing Services. The easiest and lowest cost way to sell shares is online via www.capitadeal.com/Diageo. Alternatively you can sell over the telephone by calling Capita on +44 (0) 371 277 1010 between 8am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays). Alternatively, you can arrange the sale with a Stockbroker of your choice.
Shares may be transferred 'off market', that is without using a bank or stockbroker, if the buyer and seller agree and send a signed stock transfer form with a share certificate(s) to the Diageo Registrar. An 'off market' transfer is generally used when there is no stamp duty payable on the transfer, for example to give shares to a relative or to a charity.
For further details on how to transfer Diageo shares 'off market', please contact the Diageo Registrar.

Where stamp duty is payable on the transfer, the stock transfer form should be sent to a HM Revenue & Customs stamp office and the duty paid before being forwarded to the Diageo Registrar for registration.
