What the dividend vouchers must show
Dividend vouchers must show the amount of money paid by the company to you, normally from its profits. They should confirm both the gross and net dividend paid. You should provide a separate dividend voucher or payment advice slip for each dividend payment, to cover the whole period claimed.
A share of a company's profits, paid to people who have invested in it (for example by buying shares).
An official document showing the amount of dividend earned both before and after official deductions have been made (for example tax). (See dividends.)
Gross dividend is the share of a company's profits, paid to people who have invested in it (for example by buying shares), before any official deductions have been made. Net dividend is the amount the investor actually receives after deductions have been made.
