This section includes comprehensive shareholder information of value to an analyst, shareholder, potential investor or any other stakeholder.
Did you know that you can have your dividends from British American Tobacco paid direct into your bank or building society account? It's quick and easy to set up and is the fastest and most secure way to receive your dividends.
Remember, if your dividend cheque gets lost in the post, the Company's registrars, Computershare Investor Services PLC (Computershare) will, in accordance with standard industry practice, charge an administration fee for putting a stop on the cheque and reissuing it for you. You can avoid the risk of this happening by electing to have your dividend payments made directly into your bank or building society account. This is also the 'greener' option as it reduces the number of cheques we have to print.
