Welcome to the Royal Mail Employee Share Offers page.
Employee Share Options

Dividends
Subject to shareholder approval, eligible employees will receive a dividend on both their SIP 2013 and SIP 2014 Free Shares in July 2014. All eligible employees will receive their dividend payment directly into the bank account where their salary is paid*, on 31 July 2014.

Eligible full-time employees, who have received the full allocation of 729 Free Shares, will receive a dividend of around £96.

Eligible part-time employees will receive a dividend based on their pro-rata allocation of Free Shares.

The full dividend amount will be paid regardless of whether you are a basic rate taxpayer, or a higher rate taxpayer. For more information, see our dividend section.
