Direct dividend payments

Centrica operates a service that pays dividends automatically into shareholders' bank or building society accounts. This service gives shareholders a number of benefits and also helps Centrica improve its efficiency by reducing postage and cheque clearing costs.

Many of our shareholders are already benefiting from this service; if you have not already registered for this service you might like to consider doing so.

Benefits include:

  • there is no chance of the dividend cheque going missing in the post, so you will never need to worry about asking for a replacement;
  • the dividend is received quicker as the cash is in your account on payment date without the need to wait for a cheque to clear;
  • a single consolidated tax voucher is issued at the end of each tax year in March, in time for your self-assessment tax return.

Registration for this service is easy. All you need to do is complete your shareholder details and your bank or building society account number on the Direct Dividend Payment Form and return it to Equiniti.

Overseas dividend payments

A service has been established to provide shareholders in over 30 countries worldwide with the opportunity to receive Centrica dividends in their local currency. For a small flat-rate fee, shareholders can have their dividends automatically converted from Sterling and paid into their nominated bank account normally within five working days of the dividend payment date. For further details, please contact the Centrica shareholder helpline on +44 121 415 7061.

Consolidated dividend tax vouchers

As from the final dividend payment for 2001 (paid in June 2002), Centrica introduced a new consolidated tax voucher (CTV) service for those shareholders who have chosen to receive dividends directly into their bank account. Funds will still be credited to your account on payment day, but there will be no postal notification of the dividend payment to coincide.

Instead, you will receive a personalised CTV, detailing all the dividend payments in the tax year, along with the Notice of Annual General Meeting and the Annual Review. These will be mailed at the end of March each year, to coincide with receipt of your Inland Revenue Tax Return.

Please note that shareholders who still choose to receive their dividends by cheque will receive a tax voucher attached to each dividend cheque. However, choosing to have your dividends paid directly into your bank account, and joining the CTV service, helps shareholders and helps Centrica. See above for details of direct dividend payments and a link to the relevant form. If you have any queries about your CTV, please contact Equiniti.
