The 2013 Final Dividend was fully franked for Australian tax purposes.
New Zealand imputation credits of NZ 10 cents per ordinary share were also attached to all cash dividend payments and to the Dividend Amounts relating to all ordinary shares that participate in the Dividend Reinvestment Plan with respect to the 2013 Final Dividend (but were not attached in connection with ordinary shares that participate in the Bonus Option Plan).
The Record Date for the 2013 Final Dividend was 13 November 2013.
ANZ has a policy that all dividends payable to shareholders in Australia, New Zealand or Great Britain will be paid by direct credit to their nominated financial institution accounts (excluding credit card accounts).
Subject to having received effective contrary instructions from the shareholder, the 2013 Final Dividend paid to shareholders with a registered address in Great Britain (including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) or New Zealand was converted to pounds sterling and New Zealand dollars respectively at an exchange rate calculated on 15 November 2013.
For those shareholders who will received payment of the 2013 Final Dividend in pounds sterling or New Zealand dollars, the following exchange rates were used: AUD/GBP 0.580552 and AUD/NZD 1.126226 respectively.
ANZ offers both a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) and a Bonus Option Plan (BOP) as alternatives to receiving cash dividends on ANZ ordinary shares.
The Acquisition Price used in determining the number of shares to be provided under the DRP and BOP in connection with the 2013 Final Dividend was the arithmetic average of the daily volume weighted average sale price of all fully paid ANZ ordinary shares sold on the ASX during the ten trading days commencing 13 November 2013, and then rounded to the nearest whole cent (- please note that no discount was applied when calculating the Acquisition Price in relation to the 2013 Final Dividend). In order to be effective, election notices from ordinary shareholders wanting to commence, cease or vary their participation in the DRP or BOP for the 2013 Final Dividend must have been received by ANZ's Share Registrar by 5.00 pm (Australian Eastern Daylight time) on 13 November 2013.
As announced to the ASX on 27 November 2013, the Acquisition Price for the 2013 Final Dividend was AUD31.83.
ANZ offers a Dividend Charity Donation Program, which enables ANZ shareholders who are Australian resident taxpayers to donate some or all of the cash dividends on their ANZ ordinary shares to one of a number of charities.
The Record Date for a dividend is the date by reference to which the Company will determine which shareholders on its share register are entitled to receive the dividend.
More specifically, the Record Date is 5.00 pm (in the case of an ASTC regulated transfer, a later time permitted by the ASTC Settlement Rules) on the date specified by the Company as the date by reference to which the Company will identify the shareholders on the Company's register entitled to the dividend.
The Record Date is sometimes referred to as the close of books date
The ex dividend date is four business days before the Record Date of the dividend. To be entitled to the dividend, a shareholder must have purchased shares before the ex dividend date.
People who purchase shares on the sharemarket on or after the ex dividend date are not entitled to the dividend. Conversely, if you sell shares on the sharemarket on or after the ex dividend date, you are still entitled to the dividend.
This is the date on which steps are taken by the Company to pay the dividend to entitled shareholders.
