Dividends

Can I have my dividends paid directly into my bank or building society account?

Yes, this is possible with most bank or building society accounts in the UK and is sometimes referred to as a "payment instruction" or "dividend mandate". Mandating your dividends has a number of advantages for you: The dividend will go in to your account on payment date - there is no chance of it being delayed in the post and you do not have to wait for a cheque to clear. The payment method is more secure than receiving a cheque in the post. Tax information about the dividend is sent direct to you at your registered address.
