Please contact Computershare directly for all enquiries about your shareholding. Visit their Investor Centre website for online information about your shareholding (you will need your shareholder reference number which can be found on your share certificate or dividend tax voucher), or telephone the registrars direct using the dedicated telephone number for Big Yellow shareholders +44(0)370 889 3226).
Shareholders can arrange to have their dividends paid directly into their bank or building society account by completing a bank mandate form. The advantages to using this service are: the payment is more secure than sending a cheque through the post; it avoids the inconvenience of paying in a cheque and there is no risk of lost, stolen or out-of-date cheques. A mandate form can be obtained from Computershare.
From April 2016 dividend tax credits will be replaced by an annual £5,000 tax-free allowance on dividend income across an individual’s entire share portfolio. Above this amount, individuals will pay tax on their dividend income at a rate dependent on their income tax bracket and personal circumstances. The Company will continue to provide registered shareholders with a confirmation of the dividends paid by Big Yellow Group PLC and this should be included with any other dividend income received when calculating and reporting total dividend income received. It is the shareholder’s responsibility to include all dividend income when calculating any tax liability. This change was announced by the Chancellor, as part of the UK government Budget, in July 2015. If you have any tax queries, please contact a Financial Advisor.
All shareholder communications, including the Company’s Annual Report and Accounts, are made available to shareholders on the Big Yellow website and you may opt to receive e-mail notification that documents and information are available to view and download rather than to receive paper copies through the post. Using electronic communications helps us to limit the amount of paper we use and assists us in reducing our costs. If you would like to sign up for this service, visit Computershare’s Investor Centre website. You may change the way you receive communications at any time by contacting Computershare.
