If you know the fact that how important it is to keep yourself updated about important dates then your chances of getting good returns from your investment becomes quite great. UK dividend Stocks are categorized according to the returns they provide to their investors.

    Some stocks yield high returns to investors while some yield comparatively low returns so it's always desirable from an investor's point of view to choose high Yield Dividend Stocks in UK Share Market. But, suppose you have find some best paying stocks and you have decided to invest in them what matter after that? Only thing that matter after that is how often those stocks will provide you dividend in a year i.e. yearly or half yearly and when it will going ex-dividend in stock market. Investor's place their effort to set or arrange their ex-dividend dates of their stocks in such an order that it should come in each and every month. You can manage dividend calendar to manage your important dividend dates in UK like ex-dividend date, record dates, dividend payment dates etc. this is essential to schedule the income from dividends in UK.

    Generally when a company does announcements regarding payment, 2 key dates are announced usually i.e. record date, ex-dividend date and payment date.

    Record Date: Record Date is the date after which new buyers of the particular stocks will not be eligible for any due dividend payment on that stock. For example if you sell your stocks or buy any new stock after record date you will not be eligible to get any due dividend from the company. But interestingly company do not refer is as a record date. Official announcement from the company official will be something like ……. will be paid on..{Payment date}...to shareholders on the register at ….record date. So it becomes quite necessary for you to keep track of record dates for a dividend so you can claim your dividend for owning company stock.

    Ex- Dividend Date: This is the date on which a company labels a particular stock as dividend to be paid to stocks owner. If you sell your stock on this date you will still be eligible to get dividends. Being Ex-Dividend for an UK stock simply means it has been labeled as div been paid off to its owner. Once a stocks Become ex-dividend, you can immediately sell it. In that case even you will be eligible to get dividend on the stock you just sold.
