Arranging dividend payments

 

Online

If you would like to have your dividend paid directly into your bank account, you can arrange this via our registrars' website.
You will first need to register on the website and set up an online portfolio. You can then give your dividend payment instructions online.

By post
You can also use one of the shareholder forms and return the completed form by post to the address shown on the form.

 

Dividend tax vouchers

We send out consolidated tax vouchers every February (commencing February 2015). However if you have registered on our registrar's website and set up an online portfolio you will receive a tax voucher with every dividend payment which is available to download via your online portfolio.
