Your dividend payments

We no longer pay our dividends by cheque. To continue to receive your dividend payments, you must provide your bank details.

To provide your details online, please log in to your Share Portal account. If you do not have a Share Portal account, register now to manage your dividends online.

Our dividends are usually paid twice a year, in May and September, to eligible shareholders on the register at the dividend record date.

You can find our key dividend dates in our financial calendar.

2023 final dividend: 7.30 pence per share

The payment you received dated 30 April 2024 relates to the 2023 final dividend, based on the number of shares you held on the register on the dividend record date – 15 March 2024. This dividend was paid at the rate of 7.30 pence per share.

If you are resident in Ireland, Germany or Austria, or elected to receive your dividend in EURO, your dividend was paid at an exchange rate of GBP £1: EUR 1.1717.

If you are resident in Canada, your dividend was paid at an exchange rate of GBP £1: CAD 1.7182.

If you participate in the Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the DRIP), shares are purchased on your behalf from the dividend payment date and credited to your account on the register 3 working days after the purchase completes at which time you will be able to view your dividend documents online. If you receive your communications by email or your documents in the post, or if you receive share certificates, these will be sent to you around 21 May 2024. This date maybe subject to change if market conditions mean that more time is required to complete the DRIP purchase.

Move to Annual Dividend Confirmations

From May 2023, instead of a dividend confirmation being sent for each payment, we will send you an Annual Dividend Confirmation (ADC) once a year. The ADC will show dividend information for all dividends paid to you by bank mandate in the same tax year, all in one place. You will usually be sent this annual dividend confirmation in September.

Income Tax: HMRC has reduced the Annual Dividend Allowance from 6th April 2024.

Please be advised legislation has been introduced to change section 13A of the Income Tax Act 2007. This measure has reduced the tax-free allowance for dividend income (the ‘Dividend Allowance’) to £500 from 6 April 2024.
