Dividend payments

If you have not elected to participate in either the Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) or Bonus Option Plan (BOP), your dividend will be paid to you by direct credit and deposited into your nominated bank account.

Payment by direct credit applies to all shareholders with a registered address in Australia, New Zealand or the United Kingdom (including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man), with payments made in AUD, NZD and GBP, respectively. 

Shareholders with a registered address elsewhere can elect to have their dividends paid into an Australian, New Zealand or United Kingdom bank account, failing which they will be sent an AUD or GBP cheque depending on the currency elected.  To be effective for the next dividend payment, the election must be submitted to ANZ’s Share Registrar by 5pm on the last date for receipt of FX elections (see above).

Share Alternatives

ANZ offers both a Dividend Reinvestment Plan and a Bonus Option Plan as alternatives to receiving cash dividends on ANZ Ordinary Shares.

Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP)

The DRP allows eligible shareholders to reinvest all or part of their dividends in additional ordinary shares instead of cash.  More information, including an easy to understand questions and answers booklet which sets out how the DRP operates, how to participate and eligibility, can be found here: DRP Terms and Conditions.

Bonus Option Plan (BOP)

The BOP enables eligible shareholders to increase their holding by forgoing all or part of their dividends and receiving bonus ordinary shares instead.  More information, including an easy to understand questions and answers booklet which sets out how the BOP operates, how to participate and eligibility, can be found here: BOP Terms and Conditions.

It is important to note that if a shareholder makes an election to participate in the BOP and also a separate election to participate in the DRP, the BOP election will have priority over the DRP election to the extent of any conflict.

Shareholders should obtain their own professional advice in relation to the financial and tax implications in participating in the DRP and/or BOP.

 

Dividend charity donations

ANZ offers a Dividend Charity Donation Program, which enables ANZ shareholders who are Australian resident taxpayers to donate some or all of the cash dividends on their ANZ ordinary shares to one of a number of charities. Employee share classes are not eligible to participate.

Frequently asked questions

When will I receive my dividend?

ANZ usually announces a dividend with the release of its half year results  and full year results. Dividends are usually paid twice a year, in July (interim dividend) and December (final dividend).

 

What if I have not provided my direct credit instructions?

If you do not provide your bank details by the Record Date, your registered address is in Australia, New Zealand or the United Kingdom (including the Channel Islands and Isle of Man) and you are not a participant in the DRP or BOP, your dividends will be held in a non-interest bearing account until current / valid direct credit instructions are provided. Once valid AUD, NZD or GBP direct credit instructions are provided, payment will be made to your nominated bank account.

 

What is the Record Date and what does it mean?

The Record Date for a dividend is the date on which you need to be a registered shareholder to be eligible to receive the current dividend. To be eligible, you need to be recorded on the share register at 5pm on the Record Date. 

 

What is the Ex Dividend Date and what does it mean?

The ex dividend date occurs on the business day before the Record Date of the dividend. To be entitled to the dividend, a shareholder must have purchased shares before the ex-dividend date.  People who purchase shares on the share market on or after the ex dividend date are not entitled to the dividend. Conversely, if you sell shares on the share market on or after the ex-dividend date, you are still entitled to receive the dividend.

 

How is the DRP/BOP price determined?

The acquisition price is the arithmetic average of the daily volume weighted average sale price of all fully paid ANZ ordinary shares sold on ASX and Chi-X during the DRP/BOP pricing period and then rounded to the nearest whole cent. If the fraction is on half of a cent, the amount will be rounded down to the nearest whole cent.
