Consolidated tax vouchers (CTVs) are sent to shareholders shortly after the payment of the interim dividend in late September each year.
A CTV is personalised and gives details of all dividend payments made during that tax year.
Funds are credited to shareholders’ accounts on each dividend payment day but no postal notification of the dividend payment is sent to shareholders. Shareholders should therefore check their bank statements to ensure that payment has been received. If the dividend has not been received shareholders should contact Computershare – see details below.
Shareholders who choose to receive their dividends by cheque receive a tax voucher attached to each dividend cheque.
Shareholders who choose to have their dividends paid direct into their bank accounts, and who join the CTV service, benefit both themselves and British American Tobacco in the following ways:
- the payments are more secure and remove the necessity for shareholders to visit their bank/building society to deposit a cheque;
- there is no possibility of cheques going astray in the postal system so there are no subsequent costs to shareholders to obtain a replacement.
See our page on Dividend mandate instructions for details of how to mandate your dividend direct into your bank or building society account together with the relevant form.
