How to sell small number of AIB shares

    I have small number of AIB shares, 10 which I have physical share cert. I want to crystalise losses to offset against capital gain that i will make later this year but how do i sell the shares.

    I have a degiro account, but dont know if computershare can transfer the shares digitally for me to sell, not worried if it will cost say €50 as the tax saved on realising tbe losses be worth it, but dont really want to open account with Davys/Goodbodies as am sure would cost a lot if not going to be used afterwards.

    Anyone give advice on how or where to sell, as its a pity Govt didnt allow the cost of the shares to be assumed to be lost, or even 99% of it as thats what happened and worse when 250 shares became 1 new one.

    Thanks in advance,

    I have 2 AIB shares from when 250 become 1. Surely AIB/the State will buy back all these tiny holdings at some point? There must be thousands of shareholders with a dozen or less shares in AIB. I get an annual report posted out annually along with the proxy vote form. Crazy.

    It might be worth putting a call into Goodbody, to see if there's any goodwill there, given they are now owned by AIB (again :))
