Payment of Dividends directly
Many UK shareholders have already arranged for dividends to be paid by mandate directly into their bank or building society account. Future Plc pays dividends through BACS (Bankers’ Automated Clearing System). The benefit to shareholders of the BACS payment method is that the Registrar posts or electronically sends by email the tax vouchers directly to them, whilst the dividend is credited on the payment date to the shareholder’s bank or building society account. Shareholders wishing to benefit from this service should register at www.investorcentre.co.uk or call our registrar, Computershare Investor Services PLC, via the contact details above for a form. The benefit to the Company is improved efficiency through lower postage charges.
