Barclays has said investors need to be on its share register by 13th September to qualify for the launch of its £5.8bn rights issue.
Barclays will publish a prospectus for the share issue after that time.
The issue is the biggest by a British bank since 2009. The bank is raising the money after Britain's financial regulator said it needed an extra £12.8bn to cushion it against potential market shocks.
The rights issue will offer existing shareholders one new share at £1.85 for every four they currently own, a 40% discount to Barclays' share price on the day before it was announced.
