Did you know that you can have your dividends from British American Tobacco paid direct into your bank or building society account? It's quick and easy to set up and is the fastest and most secure way to receive your dividends.
Remember, if your dividend cheque gets lost in the post, the Company's registrars, Computershare Investor Services PLC (Computershare) will, in accordance with standard industry practice, charge an administration fee for putting a stop on the cheque and reissuing it for you. You can avoid the risk of this happening by electing to have your dividend payments made directly into your bank or building society account. This is also the 'greener' option as it reduces the number of cheques we have to print.
Warning to shareholders - Beware of share fraud
The practice of share fraud (also known as 'boiler room' scams) unfortunately continues with many companies' shareholders receiving unsolicited phone calls or mail from people offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless or high risk shares in US or UK investments, or to buy shares at an inflated price in return for an upfront payment. Please see below the Financial Conduct Authority’s share fraud warning leaflet.
