We will pay dividends semi-annually from 2016 rather than quarterly. We expect payments to be made in April and September each year.

We expect to pay out a significant proportion of earnings in dividends to shareholders in the longer term.

As a shareholder, you can choose how you want 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.

The interim dividend for the year ending 31 December 2016 of 1p per ordinary share was paid on Monday, 19 September 2016 to shareholders holding shares on the register on Friday, 12 August 2016 (record date). 

For US and Canadian-resident American Depositary Receipt (ADR) holders, the interim dividend of 1p per ordinary share became 4p per ADS (American Depositary Security - representing four shares). The ADR depositary posted the dividend on Monday, 19 September 2016 to ADR holders on record on Friday, 12 August 2016. The ex-dividend date for ADR holders was Wednesday, 10 August 2016. 

  • 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 shareview.co.uk (new window) 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 and return to Equiniti at the address on the form.

    Alternatively, if you hold 2,500 shares or fewer, you can provide your bank or building society account details quickly and easily over the telephone using Equiniti's contact details.

  • 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 Barclays 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 – September 2016 dividend

    The Scrip reference share price for the interim dividend in respect of the year ending 31 December 2016 was £1.6242. This price was 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 Thursday, 11 August 2016 (September 2016 ex-dividend date) to Wednesday, 17 August 2016 (inclusive). 

    To participate in or leave the Programme in respect of the September 2016 dividend payment, Equiniti should have received your Scrip Dividend Mandate Form or Revocation Form (as appropriate) no later than 16:30 (UK time) on Friday, 26 August 2016.
