On 1 March 2016, we announced our intention to pay dividends semi-annually in April and September from 2016.

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 final dividend for the year ended 31 December 2017 of 2p per ordinary share was paid on Thursday, 5 April 2018 to shareholders holding shares on the register on Friday, 2 March 2018 (record date).

For US and Canadian-resident American Depositary Receipt (ADR) holders, the final dividend of 2p per ordinary share became 8p per ADS (American Depositary Security - representing four shares). The ADR depositary posted the dividend on Thursday, 5 April 2018 to ADR holders on record on Friday, 2 March 2018. The ex-dividend date for ADR holders was Wednesday, 1 March 2017.

The interim dividend for the year ending 31 December 2018 of 2.5p per ordinary share was paid on Monday, 17 September 2018 to shareholders holding shares on the register on Friday, 10 August 2018 (record date).

For US and Canadian-resident American Depositary Receipt (ADR) holders, the interim dividend of 2.5p per ordinary share became 10.0p per ADS (American Depositary Security - representing four shares). The ADR depositary posted the dividend on Monday, 17 September 2018 to ADR holders on record on Friday, 10 August 2018.

  • 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.
