COLL 11.1.2 Service of Notices and Other Documents on Unitholders—All QFC Schemes

(1) If a provision of these rules authorises or requires any notice or other document to be served on a unitholder of a QFC scheme (whether the word 'serve', 'give', 'notify', 'send' or 'tell', or some other word, is used), the notice or other document may be served—
(a) by sending it by prepaid post to the unitholder's postal address shown in the unitholder register; or
(b) by leaving it at the unitholder's business or residential address shown in the unitholder register; or
(c) by sending it to the unitholder using an electronic medium in accordance with rule 11.1.3 (Notices and other documents to be in legible form etc—all schemes).

Note Unitholder is defined in r 1.2.5. Document and unitholder register are defined in the glossary.
(2) Any notice or other document served by post under this rule is taken to have been served when it would have been received in the ordinary course of post.
(3) For subrule (2), it is presumed (unless evidence sufficient to raise doubt about the presumption is presented) that a postal article sent by prepaid post is received on the 5th business day after the day it is posted.

Note Business day is defined in the glossary.
(4) Any document left at an address, or served otherwise than by post, under this rule is taken to have been served on that day.
