Your dividend payments
In April 2020 GSK simplified the way it makes dividend payments. All cash dividends are now only distributed by direct credit.
You will need to provide Equiniti, our registrar, with your bank details for your dividends to be paid directly to your nominated account by direct credit. If you do not provide this information, you will still receive an annual dividend statement; however, you will not receive the money until your bank details are received, after which payment will be credited to your bank or building society account as soon as possible. Your dividends will not accrue interest while they are being held for you and there may be a fee for Equiniti to reissue payments.
Reinvest your dividends to buy more shares
With the GSK Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP) you can use your cash dividends to buy more shares in GSK. As an alternative to the dividend payment, your cash will be used to buy additional shares. The DRIP is a convenient, easy and cost-effective way to build your shareholding.
To apply for the GSK DRIP, visit the Shareview website.
US-based shareholders should contact JP Morgan ADR shareholder services. Their contact details can be found on the Investors contact details page.
The Depositary also provides Global Invest Direct, an ADS purchase/sale and dividend reinvestment plan for ADR holders. Current participants in the BNY Global BuyDIRECT will receive a welcome letter via US Mail with instructions for activating their new Global Invest Direct account.
