Dividends and interest payments
Paying dividend and interest payments into a bank or building society
account helps reduce the risk of fraud and will provide you with
immediate access to your funds. Applications for an electronic
mandate can be made by contacting the Registrar.
If your dividend is paid directly into your bank or building society
account, you will receive an annual consolidated tax voucher which
will be sent to you in September each year at the time the interim
dividend is paid. You will receive a tax voucher each time you are
paid an interest payment.
Dividend and interest payment tax vouchers are available electronically
at to those holders who have their payments
mandated to their bank or building society accounts and who have
expressed a preference for e-communications.
The Company operates a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) which
provides shareholders with a way of increasing their shareholding
in the Company by reinvesting their dividends. A copy of the
DRIP information pack and application form can be obtained
from the Registrar.
Details of dividend payments can be found in the Directors’ report
on page 66.
Schroders offers a service to shareholders in participating countries
which enables dividends to be received in local currencies. You can
check your eligibility and/or request a mandate form by contacting
the Registrar.

Warning to shareholders
Companies are aware that their shareholders have received unsolicited
telephone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters.
These are typically from overseas-based ‘brokers’ who target UK
shareholders, offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless
or high risk shares or investments. These operations are commonly
known as ‘boiler rooms’. These ‘brokers’ can be very persistent and
extremely persuasive.
Shareholders are advised to be wary of any unsolicited advice, offers
to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports. If you
receive any unsolicited investment advice:
–– Make sure you get the correct name of the person and
–– Check that they are properly authorised by the FCA before
getting involved by visiting
–– Report the matter to the FCA by calling 0800 111 6768 or
–– Do not deal with any firm that you are unsure about
If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you will not be eligible to receive
payment under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. The
FCA provides a list of unauthorised firms of which it is aware, which
can be accessed at
More detailed information on this or similar activity can be found on
the FCA website at
Capital gains tax
