Time to switch

The Santander Nominee Service is simplifying the way it makes dividend payments.

From 1 October 2021, payments to shareholders will no longer be made by cheque

If you still receive cheques, you will need to provide your bank or building society account details so that future dividend payments and any other money payable to you in connection with your Santander shares can be made directly to your nominated account by direct credit. It is a more efficient, secure, and environmentally sustainable payment method.

You can do this in any of the following ways with your Shareholder Reference and nominated bank account details ready to hand:


If you already have a Santander Shareview Portfolio, login to your account and select 'Arrange direct dividend payments’ from the Quick links menu.

If you do not have a Santander Shareview Portfolio, register for an account and once it's activated you can give your instruction.

Alternatively, if you hold 2500 shares or fewer, you can email us details of your request along with your Shareholder Reference Number and we’ll get in contact with you.


If you hold 2500 shares or fewer call:

+44 (0) 371 384 2000

Please use the country code when calling from outside the UK. Lines are open 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (UK time), Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays in England and Wales).

When you call, please quote your Shareholder Reference; this can be found on any previous correspondence we have sent you.


Simply complete the Bank Mandate Form included with your dividend cheque and return it in the reply-paid envelope provided.

If you don't have this you can download a bank mandate form and send it to:

Santander Nominee Service
Aspect House
