How are stock dividends paid to my share dealing account?

As soon as we receive a dividend payment from any of the shares you own, we will credit your account. It will appear on your ledger as additional cash. You can choose to either reinvest it or withdraw it. 

We’ll also send you a Consolidated Tax Certificate (CTC) which summarises any UK and overseas dividends and interest paid on securities between the dates indicated. The CTC may also be referred to as a Consolidated Tax Voucher (CTV). These are usually generated in May or June, to cover the tax year just ended.
