Our dividends are usually paid twice a year. If a shareholder has provided details for a mandate to be set up, dividends will be paid direct to a bank or building society account. Otherwise, dividends will be sent by cheque. We also have a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) available, so shareholders may elect to reinvest their dividends to buy additional shares.

Additional information on dividends
For dividends paid prior to the 5 April 2016 tax vouchers were issued stating the amount of tax credit paid on each dividend. With effect from 6 April 2016 the UK 10% tax credit on dividends was abolished and replaced with a £5,000 tax-free allowance and tax vouchers by dividend confirmations.
For shareholders who receive dividends direct to a bank account then an annual dividend confirmation is issued, for cheque payments a dividend confirmation is produced for each payment.
Further information on dividends is available on the 'Frequently asked questions' page on the Saga Shareholder Services Portal – www.sagashareholder.co.uk – registration is by investor code (IVC).
