Dividends

Countryside Properties PLC currently pays interim dividends in July in the relevant financial year and final dividends in February of the following financial year, with the amount being paid in an approximate one-third (interim) and two-thirds (final) split. Payment can be received either by cheque, direct to your bank or building society account or through the CREST system. Alternatively, you can reinvest your dividends into additional Countryside shares by joining the Dividend Reinvestment Plan.

Dividends paid direct to your bank or building society account

By having your dividends paid direct to your bank or building society account, you will avoid the risk of having your cheque lost in the post or having to present it to the bank.

You will receive your dividend in your account on the dividend payment day and dividend confirmation will be posted to your home address.
