How can I get my dividends directly paid into my bank account?

How to arrange direct dividend payments

You can arrange to have dividends paid direct to your bank account. Depending on the currency you wish to receive your payment in and the country your bank account is held in, please select the option from the "How to" list below for further information.

Existing dividend mandate details can be amended; to have dividends paid to a different bank society account.

Please note:

In most cases, we are unable to set mandated dividend payments to anyone other than the shareholder themselves. There are only a few exceptional circumstances when we will be able to do this; such as when the shareholder is deceased, where there is a Court Protection Order, or when another type of Order is in place.


For a dividend payment made direct to your bank account by abrdn, no fee is chargeable. If you use the Overseas Payment Service (OPS), provided by Equiniti, fees apply. Please read below for further information.
