Add Edit Delete Dividend Transactions

You can use the share tab to enter dividend transactions for listed and unlisted companies. This section discusses how to add, edit and delete dividend transactions.

In this example we are going to add a UK domestic dividend to the 'Share' tab of a Portfolio Account.

Step 1: Select a Portfolio Account

To add dividend transactions to an share account, you can use the drop down navigation menus to go directly to the share section of the account that you would like to add the transactions to, as illustrated in the following screen shot:

and then click on the 'shares' tab as illustrated:

Step 2: Edit Dividend Transactions

Within the share tab for a given Account, the dividend section lists the dividends that have been received between the selected 'start date' and 'end date'. To add a Dividend transaction, click on the dividend transaction ‘add/edit’ button (found at the end of the dividend section) as illustrated in the following screen shot.

To view transactions between a selected date range, edit the 'start' and 'end dates'. To do so click on the date boxes and use the drop down calender to select the dates you wish to use; alternatively manually enter the new start and end dates by typing the dates into the date boxes:

If you have entered a transaction but it is not displayed, please check that the 'start' and 'end dates' are set to the appropriate time frame associated with the missing transaction.

Step 3: Add the Dividend

In this example we are going to add a dividend for Tesco (EPIC: TSCO.L). A domestic dividend was paid on the 22nd of December 2007, with a net dividend of 2.81 pence per share held. The total net dividend for 550 Tesco shares was £15.46 and there was a tax credit of £1.72 against the total net dividend. Please note that the total value of the dividend can be left blank if the share quantity and net dividend per share values are entered.

To enter this information complete the dividend fields as illustrated in the following screen shot (please note that you can leave the total net dividend field blank as this will automatically be calculated when you press the 'add' button:

For UK dividends, the 'net dividend per share' should be enter in pence (GBX) and the 'tax credit' and 'total net dividend figures' should be enter in pounds (GBP). For US and Euro entries all fields should be entered in US Dollars and Euros respectively.

When you are finished editing your dividend entry click on the 'add' button.

Step 4: Edit or Delete an Existing Dividend

To edit an existing transaction, click on the 'edit' button associated with the transaction as illustrated:

To delete a dividend transaction, tick the check box associated with the transaction, or tick the 'delete all' check box position beside the 'delete selected' button. When the transactions have been selected, click on the 'delete selected' button.

Once complete, to return to normal view, click on the 'done' button.
