EX DIVIDEND /RECORD DATE EXPLAINED.

**************************************changes of importance*******************************************
Market Notice
2 December 2013
N14/13
Introduction of T+2 standard settlement period
1
Introduction
1. Further to the press release issued by Euroclear UK & Ireland earlier today,
which announced the shortening of the standard settlement cycle for the Irish
and UK capital markets from T+3 (trade date plus three business days) to T+2
(trade date plus two business days) from 6 October 2014, this Notice provides
information regarding the impact on the Exchange’s markets/trading services.
Background
2. The standard settlement period is being shortened in accordance with the Central
Securities Depository Regulation (“CSDR”) which aims to harmonise EU
securities settlement cycles. The Exchange is implementing this change in
conjunction with other UK trading venues to facilitate a smooth transition. Other
European markets will also be announcing their plans on implementing the T+2
settlement cycle.
Rules of the London Stock Exchange (“the Rules”)
3. No rule amendments are required for the implementation of T+2 settlement,
however, the Millennium Exchange Business Parameters document (which can
be accessed from www.lseg.com/tradingservices ) will be updated to reflect the
change to standard settlement (as defined in the Rules (Rule 5010)). Standard
settlement from 6 October 2014 will be as follows for trading on the Exchange’s
markets/trading services.
Where standard settlement is currently T+3 it will become T+2 for:
- SETS
- SETSqx (with or without market makers)
- SEAQ (including fixed interest)
- Trade Reporting Only (including fixed interest)
- International Order Book
- Order book for Retail Bonds (ORB) (Corporates)
Standard settlement will remain T+1 for:
- Gilts (including Gilts trading on ORB)
- Rights Issue executions both on and off order book for securities that would
otherwise settle on T+2 above Market Notice
2 December 2013
2
Standard settlement will remain T+3 for:
- International Board (reflecting standard settlement for the securities’ home
market)
4. Rule 5011 continues to allow member firms to agree an alternative settlement
due date of no more than 20 business days after trade date for on Exchange
trades. Settlement of trades in European Quoting Service and European Trade
Reporting service securities should be agreed by counterparties under this Rule.
Rule 5011 will be reviewed in light of the final CSDR text.
Ex Dividend Regime
5. As a result of the move to T+2 settlement market participants are also reminded
that Ex Dividend dates will move to Thursdays with Record dates remaining as
Fridays. These changes will not apply to the Ex Dividend arrangements in place
for Gilts. An updated Dividend Procedure Timetable for 2014 will be issued
shortly.
Transitional arrangements where standard settlement is moving from T+3 to T+2
6. Standard Settlement dates for trades subject to the transition to T+2 during the
period Thursday 2 October and Tuesday 7 October are outlined below. Member
firms will note that an implementation date of 6 October 2014 will lead to
increased settlement on Wednesday 8 October 2014.
Trade Date Settlement Date
Thursday 2 October Tuesday 7 October
Friday 3 October Wednesday 8 October
Monday 6 October Wednesday 8 October
Tuesday 7 October Thursday 9 October
7. Any comments or queries on this notice should be addressed to Tim Beckwith,
telephone +44 (0)20 7797 1402 (STX 31402) or email: tbeckwith@lseg.com

Do I qualify for a dividend, and when will it be paid?
To qualify for a dividend payment you must be the owner of shares at the close of business on the working day before the ex dividend date.
For example if the ex dividend date is 9th June:
You would qualify if you buy/bought shares on or before the 8th June and did not sell before close of business on the 8th.
You will not qualify if you buy/bought shares on or after the 9th June.
As long as you buy/bought shares on the 8th or before then you can sell the shares on the ex dividend date and still qualify for a dividend.

MORE INFORMATION RE DIVIDENDS

Guide to Dividends and Income Investing
What are dividends?
Dividends are payments made by a company from its profits to its shareholders. They are generally paid either twice a year (in an interim and final dividend) or quarterly. Some companies will occasionally make one off payments known as special dividends. Dividend stocks are sought after by income investors and will play a part in a well-diversified stock portfolio. To receive a dividend, you must buy shares in the company concerned prior to, and hold for at least part of, the ex-dividend date; if you were to buy shares on the day itself, you would not be eligible for the dividend.

What happens on the ex-dividend date?
On the ex-dividend date, the shares will typically fall by the amount of the dividend. If you hold shares in a company and do not realise it's the ex-dividend date this can obviously be quite alarming. It makes sense, however, as new buyers of shares in the company aren't eligible to receive the dividend essentially making the company worth less.

What about if I have a spread bet or CFD position open on a company which goes ex-dividend?
If you have a position with a spread betting or CFD provider when a company goes ex-dividend they will typically credit (if you are long) or debit (if you are short) the amount of the dividend to compensate for the fall in share price.

What about tax on dividends and dividend tax rates?
Anyone who receives dividends from UK companies have 10% taken off as taxation before the dividend is paid. Unfortunately, there's no way around this. However, higher rate taxpayers can avoid losing a further 25% to tax by holding the shares in a Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) or ISA.

DIVIDEND TAX CHANGES FROM APRIL 2016 IN A NUTSHELL


Investors who receive more than £5,000 from company dividends held outside tax-efficient plans such as Isas will pay more tax from next April, George Osborne announced in the Budget.
Currently, dividends paid to basic-rate taxpayers are regarded as taxed already within the corporate tax system so there is no further tax to pay. Under the new rules only the first £5,000 a year of dividend income will remain exempt.
For dividend income above this allowance, basic-rate taxpayers will pay 7.5pc, while higher-rate taxpayers will pay 32.5pc tax and those who pay the additional rate of 45pc will face 38.1pc tax.

To clarify ex-dividend /record date-today EX-DIVIDEND DATES AND RECORD DATES (UK)
LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE 2nd December 2013 ref N1413
INTRODUCTION OF T+2 (STANDARD SETTLEMENT PERIODS)
Market Notice 2 December 2013 2 Standard settlement will remain T+3 for: - International Board (reflecting standard settlement for the securities’ home market) 4. Rule 5011 continues to allow member firms to agree an alternative settlement due date of no more than 20 business days after trade date for on Exchange trades. Settlement of trades in European Quoting Service and European Trade Reporting service securities should be agreed by counterparties under this Rule. Rule 5011 will be reviewed in light of the final CSDR text. Ex Dividend Regime 5. As a result of the move to T+2
Settlement market participants are also reminded that Ex Dividend dates will move to Thursdays with Record dates remaining as Fridays. These changes will not apply to the Ex Dividend arrangements in place for Gilts. An updated Dividend Procedure Timetable for 2014 will be issued
.
BOB me, so EX-DIVIDEND DATES UK ARE THURSDAYS AND RECORD DATE THE DAY AFTER FRIDAY To get Dividend you must purchase shares before close of business on Wednesday. Thursday being the ex-dividend date, 7.30 am the share price is adjusted down by the amount of the dividend payment, + the normal overnight adjustments. ( Causing a drop in the share price)
If you like you can sell the shares on the ex-dividend day and still get the dividend.

reason for post some people are still unsure of dividend /record date procedure UK
and the web is very misleading /out of date
