Dividends are usually paid twice a year.

You can choose to have your dividend payments paid directly into your bank account. This means that:

  • Your dividend reaches your bank account on the payment date
  • It is more secure – cheques can sometimes get lost in the post
  • You don't have the inconvenience of depositing a cheque
