Shareholders who only have a small number of shares whose value makes it uneconomic to sell them may wish to consider donating them to charity through ShareGift, the independent charity share donation scheme (registered charity no. 1052686). Further information may be obtained from ShareGift on 020 7930 3737 or at sharegift.org
Fraud is on the increase and many shareholders are targeted every year. If you have any reason to believe that you may have been the target of a fraud, or attempted fraud in relation to your shareholding, please contact Equiniti immediately.
Dividends can be paid directly into your bank account. This is the easiest way for shareholders to receive dividend payments and avoids the risk of lost or out-of-date cheques. A dividend mandate form is available from Equiniti or at www.shareview.co.uk
If you are a UK taxpayer, please note that the Government has announced that from 6 April 2016 the Dividend Tax Credit has been replaced by a tax-free Dividend Allowance of £5,000. Any dividends received above this amount will be subject to taxation. Dividends paid on shares held within pensions and Individual Savings Accounts (‘ISAs’) will continue to be tax-free. Further information can be found at www.gov.uk/tax-on-dividends
From 6 April, the ‘Dividend Tax Voucher’ has been replaced by a ‘Dividend Confirmation’. An Annual Dividend Confirmation is available for shareholders who have chosen to receive dividends directly into their bank account. The single Annual Dividend Confirmation will be mailed by the end of November each year, to coincide with the final dividend payment.
Equiniti are also able to pay dividends to shareholder bank accounts in over 30 currencies worldwide through the Overseas Payment Service. An administrative fee will be deducted from each dividend payment. Further details can be obtained from Equiniti or online at www.shareview.co.uk
Dividend Reinvestment Plan
The Company operates a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (‘DRIP’) which enables shareholders to buy the Company’s shares on the London stock market with their cash dividend. Further information about the DRIP is available from Equiniti.
