Do you ever discuss the benefits of paper stock certificates with your clients? Many corporate shareholders are interested in having a tangible copy of their ownership in a company, whether for display or personal preference and a stock certificate is just the answer.
A stock certificate is a document that substantiates the legal ownership of shares of stock in a corporation, or membership interest of an LLC, and many corporate lawyers and CPAs believe it is good idea for a client to be prepared to provide stockholders with stock certificates. Stock or membership certificates are made out to the shareholder and identify the issuer, the number of shares/ interest, the par value, and the stock class.
There are certain advantages to holding a physical certificate and many shareholders are informed by legal counsel or other advisors of the importance in holding onto a paper copy of the certificate certificates until if / when a decision decide to sell or transfer securities is made.
The benefits of holding a paper stock or membership certificate include:
* The company knows how to reach the stock holder and will send all company reports and other information to him directly.
* The shareholder may find it easier to pledge securities as collateral for a loan if he or she holds the certificates in physical certificate form.
