1 Dividend payments on Mon Aug 20, 2012 1:09 pm

I have given my Bank Account No. to the CDS through my broker requesting that my dividends be directly credited to my account. I find that invariably, the dividend cheque is posted to the Bank branch and the money gets credited after a very long time. On one occasion, the dividend did not reach my Bank account for over a month and since the Company issued me a fresh cheque in lieu and cancelled the original cheque, I had to pay bank charges when the first cheque was dishonoured due to the cancellation. My question is that in these days of advanced technology, why is it that the Companies do not electronically transfer the funds to the relevant bank accounts instead of posting cheques.

Ideally, this should be done from Comany Secretary's Office. Rather than physically preparing and posting, they should arrange with their bank and electronically process it so that enormous amount of paper work and cost can be reduced.

Like CDS account, if every shareholder is required to furnish account number and if CSE / SEC mandates electronic dividend payment, this can be sorted out.

Good idea. How can we take this forward?

Electronic payment through SLIPS was done by CIND through NTB recently; the money arrived in my account on exactly the day of payment. Why can't others? Anyway, they will have to send the payment details to us for tax purposes, and for our reconciliation.

We should suggest to SEC / CSE to make the above way.

Very good suggestion. I suggested brokers to adopt the same some time back but they still resort to archaic methods when the entire world is going digital.

I am glad that there appears to be a way to communicate these ideas to the authorities. Please keep us informed of the outcome

I am a foreign investor and in a far worse position. The copy of the Dividend Warranty is sent by snail mail and takes about a week to get to UK and often not received at all because the Co.Secretaries treat it as local mail and do not enter UK and also insufficiently stamped. To make matters worse, my bank statement records it as Dividends but without the payers name which is inconvenient as I have stock in several companies. When dividends are not received I send emails to the Secretary, the Bank and CSE but to no avail.

I started this topic in 2012. Six years later, the situation is still the same except that the CSE is now requesting all shareholders to register their Bank Accounts in order to send dividends direct to the bank without first insisting that the Companies electronically transfer the dividends to the shareholders. Recently Asiri Holdings declared a dividend on 29th March 2018. The dividend was credited to my account only on 19th April 2018.
