Time to switch

The Santander Nominee Service has simplified the way it makes dividend payments.

From November 2021, any money payable in connection with your shares can only be paid by direct credit to a bank or building society account.

If you have not yet provided us with your bank or building society account details, the first interim cash dividend payment for the 2021 financial year has been retained. In order for the retained payment and future dividend payments or other money payable to you in connection with your Santander shares can be paid directly to your bank or building society account by direct credit, you will need to provide us with your nominated account details.

You can do this in any of the following ways, and you will need your Shareholder Reference and nominated account details 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 complete an online form provided by Equiniti, the operators of the Santander Nominee Service, where you will be able to securely submit your bank or building society details. You will be asked for your shareholder reference number, name, address as well as some additional security questions based on your shareholding. Please note that the link will direct you away from Santander Shareview to a secure webpage on the website.


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
