On 15 October 2013, Royal Mail floated on the London Stock Exchange.
- 10% of Royal Mail has been set aside for eligible employees through the Free Shares Offer. The Free Shares Offer has created the largest Free Share stake of any major UK privatisation.
- Your Free Shares are being held in an HMRC-approved, tax-advantaged plan known as a Share Incentive Plan (SIP). Under HMRC rules at the time of the flotation, employees could be given a maximum of £3,000 worth of Free Shares in any tax year.
If you have any questions about the Free Shares Offer you can chat to a share scheme expert on our free helpline.
Call the Employee Share Offers Helpline on 0800 012 12 13. (Calls are free from BT landlines but other network providers may charge).
The helpline is open 8.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays).
You can also contact a share scheme expert outside of normal business hours by emailing email@example.com. Please include your full name, address and your payroll number. Your email will be answered by a member of the team within 48 hours.
