The FCA major shareholding notification portal is now live (22nd March 2021) – all TR-1 notifications in relation to voting rights held in an issuer admitted to trading on a UK regulated market, must be submitted to the FCA via the major shareholdings notification portal via the FCA’s Electronic Submission System (ESS).

To submit a major shareholding notification to the FCA, investors in companies whose shares are admitted to trading on a UK regulated market should complete the electronic Standard form for notification of major holdings (TR–1 Form) contained within the ‘Major Shareholding Notification’ portal on the FCA’s Electronic Submission System (ESS).
