You can find your Shareholder Reference Number, which is 10 digits long and begins with the letter ‘C’, on your statements, dividend advice or cheques or other shareholder material. If you have a statement, the Shareholder Reference Number will be located on the right hand side near the top of the statement.
Your Securityholder Reference Number (SRN) or Holder Identification Number (HIN) is a unique identifier for your security holdings within a company. You should be able to find your SRN on your initial holding statement or on the butt of your dividend cheque or payment advice.
Is SRN and Hin the same?
SRN stands for Securityholder Reference Number. An SRN is used to identify the owner of shares that are held by a share registry (i.e. the shares are issuer sponsored). A HIN is different to an SRN. A HIN is used to identify the owner of shares that are held/managed (i.e. sponsored) by a broker like CommSec.
Go to the company’s website and search for an Investor Relations section. The share registry will be shown there.
Your Shareholder Reference Number (SRN) is a unique identifier for your shareholding and can be found on either your share certificate or a recent dividend confirmation/tax voucher and is often proceeded by either the letter C, I or G.
Where do I find my SRN Hin?

If you have an account number from a CHESS statement you will need to add an ‘X’ to the front of the account number before logging in.
What letter does my Hin start with?
You can find your HIN on a CHESS statement like the one below, or by speaking to your broker or logging into your online trading account. A HIN starts with the letter X and followed by ten numbers, e.g. X0001234567.

How do I get my dividend statement?
You can access your historical dividend payments by contacting the share registries that the company is associated with. The share registry will be able to provide you with information such as payment history and tax statements.
The best place to start is to check with the share registrar – the organisation that maintains the list of shareholders in a particular company – that is named on the certificate. There are three main registrars in the UK – Capita, Lloyds TSB and Computershare.
The first thing to do is to find out if the company on the share certificate is still trading. To do this, type in the company name in the search box on the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) website (londonstockexchange.com).
All companies in India have to file their financials and details of shareholders with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA21). You can access these documents through the website Ministry Of Corporate Affairs.
Search for lost shareholdings and unclaimed money through the Australian Government website moneysmart.gov.au. The ASIC website contains details of how to claim your money. The unclaimed money form will step you through all the information you need to provide to ASIC.
