Company profits are customarily returned to shareholders in part in the form of dividends. The frequency and amount per share of dividend payments are decided by the Board of Directors.

Dividends direct to your bank account

You can benefit from having dividends paid direct into your bank account. This means you will be credited with the dividend on the payment date and there is no chance that the cheque will be lost in the post. You will receive details of the payment via a consolidated tax voucher once a year. Meanwhile, at Millennium & Copthorne, we can cut down on paper and postage costs. To arrange direct payment of your dividends, please contact our registrar on +44 (0) 87 1384 2343.

Shareholders who have no dividend payment arrangement will receive a cheque for each dividend payment, along with a tax voucher.  You are advised to keep the tax vouchers to help you complete your tax returns.
