ACE Transfer

Step Description
1 Click the ACE & Catch tab to begin.
Note: You must be signed into FishServe and have ACE authorisation to do this.

2 The ACE & Catch Position screen will display.
Click Transfer ACE in the side-menu.

3 The ACE Transfer screen will display.

4 Enter the transferee's client name or number in the To field.
Select the client you want to transfer ACE to from the suggest results that appear.


Note: Click Try again if you didn't find who you were looking for.

5 Next, enter the stock details for the ACE transfer. This includes:
  • Stock to be transferred
  • Transfer amount 
  • Unit or sale price

Only valid stock codes and whole KG amounts or units can be entered.


Click Add stock to add more.
You can also use the tab and enter keys after entering a unit/sale price to add more.
Enter as many stocks as required.



Click the X over to the right-hand side to delete stocks.

Note: Click Add all ACE to populate the transfer with each stock held and the total ACE available for transfer (any caveated ACE will not be included). This will only be available if the transfer is for a current fishing year. You will still need to enter a unit or total price for each stock.

6 Click Proceed to payment once you've added all stocks.

7 You will see an additional Sub Stock Details section if your ACE transfer includes any stocks with a sub stock agreement (e.g. HOK1, TAR1).
You can tick the Industry Splits checkbox to split these stocks according to the industry splits.
Otherwise, you can provide the splits later via the SRE tab.

8 Payment methods vary based on your pre-payment status.
You can pay by either invoice OR credit card ONLY if you are pre-paid exempt. To pay by invoice, go to step 9.
You must pay by credit card if you are not pre-paid exempt. To do this, go to step 10.
Paying by Invoice

Do not close or exit the browser while payment processes.
