Certificated shareholders only
For shareholders who hold share certificates (investors who are not in one of our schemes but whose names are on The Scottish’s share register), dividends are automatically paid out as income.
However, if you hold share certificates and would prefer to have your dividends re-invested into our shares rather than paid out to you, this can easily be arranged by using the Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP).
If, after reading The Scottish Dividend Reinvestment Plan booklet, investors wish to reinvest their dividends into our shares they can do so by completing our Dividend Reinvestment Plan Application Form and sending it to:
Computershare Investor Services PLC
Alternatively, to request a DRIP application form, you can telephone our Registrar, Computershare Investor Services PLC, on 0370 703 0195.
THE SCOTTISH STOCKPLAN, STOCKPLAN: A Flying Start and ISA schemes
The STOCKPLAN, STOCKPLAN: A Flying Start and ISA schemes provide automatic reinvestment of dividends, free of charge (other than mandatory stamp duty).
The Scottish SIPP
Our SIPP investors can choose to have dividends reinvested by instructing the SIPP dealing and stockbroking administrator, Halifax Share Dealing Ltd, by telephoning 0845 722 5525.
Please note that whichever dividend reinvestment option you choose for our SIPP, it will apply to all investments in the SIPP as it is not possible to apply the option to selected investments only.
