Part of being a shareholder is sharing in the Company's profits when a dividend is declared. This section tells you about dividends and how and when you could receive them.
Payment of dividends
Receive your payments directly into your UK bank or building society account on the dividend payment date through the BACS (Bankers' Automated Clearing Services) system. Using this option will prevent any postal delay, risk of loss or having to visit your bank or building society to deposit cheques. The benefit to the Company is improved efficiency through lower postage charges and print costs. You can register your UK bank details online by visiting www.investorcentre.co.uk or call our registrar, Computershare Investor Services PLC, via the contact details above. Your Dividend confirmation will be issued to you via email or in the post. This document should be retained as it may be required for tax purposes
Dividend ReInvestment Plan (DRIP)
You may be interested to know that William Hill offers a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) whereby your cash dividend can be used to purchase additional William Hill shares at a low rate of commission. Contact our Registrar or register online at www.investorcentre.co.uk for further details and a DRIP mandate form.
