Dividends

Barclays declares and pays dividends on a quarterly basis. There are three equal payments in June, September and December each year and a final variable payment in March. We intend our dividend policy to be progressive.

As a shareholder, you can choose how to receive your dividend payment. Options include joining the Barclays PLC Scrip Dividend Programme (the Programme) or receiving dividends directly into your bank or building society account.

Bank mandate

Bank mandate

The majority of Barclays shareholders have their dividends paid into their bank or building society account. It's safer, quicker and easier for your dividends to be paid directly to you.

If you lose your cheque, there may be an Administration Fee to pay when the dividend payment(s) are reissued to you. Please visit www.eviewsignup.co.uk for more information.

If you would like to receive your dividends directly into your bank or building society account, please download a Bank Mandate Form using the link on this page, and return it to The Registrar to Barclays at the address on the form.

Scrip

Barclays PLC Scrip Dividend Programme

Shareholders approved the introduction of the Barclays PLC Scrip Dividend Programme (the Programme) at the Barclays PLC 2013 Annual General Meeting.

Eligible shareholders can, if they wish, increase their shareholding in Barclays through the Programme. Shareholders who join the Programme will receive new ordinary shares in Barclays instead of a cash dividend, without incurring dealing costs or stamp duty.

Legal restrictions apply. Shareholders who are resident outside the UK may participate in the Programme provided that they do not live in nor are subject to the jurisdiction of any country where their participation in the Programme would require the Company to comply with local legal, governmental or regulatory requirements or procedures, or any similar formalities. Shareholders resident outside the UK are responsible for ensuring that they may validly participate in the Programme and for observing all relevant formalities.

Scrip reference share price – March 2014 dividend

The Scrip reference share price in respect of the March 2014 dividend was £2.5719 and was announced on Wednesday, 26 February 2014.

The Scrip reference share price is the average of the closing middle market quotations for ordinary shares, derived from the London Stock Exchange Daily Official List, for the five consecutive business days from Wednesday, 19 February 2014 (March 2014 ex-dividend date) to Tuesday, 25 February 2014 (inclusive).

If you wished to participate in or leave the Programme in respect of the March 2014 dividend, The Registrar must have received your Scrip Dividend Mandate Form or Revocation Form (as appropriate) no later than 4.30pm (London time) on Friday, 7 March 2014. Any forms received after this date apply to dividends paid thereafter.
