Share Registry Service

A Share Registry Service designed for New Zealand SMEs

Snowball Effect now offers a Share Registry Service that helps simplify the management and legal obligations your company has with its shareholders.

Snowball Effect provides an online share register that tracks investments into a company over time. This register includes an investor dashboard that allows individual investors to review their shareholdings. Companies can also log in to manage their share registry. Lawyers, accountants and company directors can also log in as managers to view and update the share registry.

The Snowball Effect share register has been designed to be easy to use for companies, shareholders and advisors. The entire system is managed online and stored securely with audit trails for every transaction and transfer.

Managing your shareholders

Legal requirement

Companies are required by the Companies Act 1993 to maintain certain company records, including their own share register.

Legal obligations, administration tasks, and a big chunk of time are required for companies to remain compliant.

For companies

Our service provides an easy way to passively meet compliance obligations, while maintaining a close relationship with shareholders.

Our online registry platform captures every single movement of ownership in a company while providing functionality and flexibility to manage shareholders.

Our team takes care of the rest. We facilitate all of the time consuming administrative tasks that go along with managing shareholders.

For shareholders

The registry service provides a simple and transparent platform for shareholders.

Shareholders are able to monitor their investments, update shareholding details, download statements of holding, and perform share transfers.
