I’ve recently, through a company I do some work for, been gifted some shares. The nominated company to process these is Equiniti Financial Services Limited/ Morningstar and to manage the shares I’ve needed to sign up to their portal.
On trying to sign up it’s asked that I provide the details of my UK Bank account for a direct debit to be set up should I wish to purchase more, or pay out to if I sell the shares.
I entered “Monzo Bank” as the bank name and my Sort code / account number in the rest of the details.
It came back with “Unable to electronically verify account”
I’ve spoken to them since and they’ve requested I send a nullified cheque from the account which obviously I can’t do.
Anyone been through the same or similar and come up with a resolution? There’s a time limit on me claiming the shares and I don’t want to miss out.
