    End of attention

    Most dividends you are paid or credited will be in the form of money, either by cheque or credit in a bank account. However, the company may give you the option of reinvesting your dividends in the form of new shares in the company. This is called a dividend reinvestment scheme. If you take this option you must pay tax on your reinvested dividends just as you would on cash dividends.
