For a list of SEPA Zone territories, please visit www.europeanpaymentscouncil.euSterling payments can only be paid into Sterling Bank accounts in the UK by providing your Account and Sort Code. If you wish to set up a mandate, please contact the Registrar on +353(0)1 431 9832 or use the form on the reverse of your next/last dividend payment (if paid by cheque).

Do I have to pay tax on my dividends?

Greencore is obliged to deduct Irish dividend withholding tax unless the shareholder is entitled to an exemption, and has submitted the appropriate completed Revenue Declaration Form to the Registrar. The appropriate Revenue Declaration Form may be obtained from the Registrar. Non-Resident shareholders and certain Irish resident companies, trusts, pension schemes, investment undertakings and charities (as defined in the Taxes Consolidation Act, 1997) may be entitled to claim exemption from dividend withholding tax. If you are an individual shareholder who is tax resident in Ireland, you will not qualify for exemption and the withholding tax will be deducted in your case.
