UK Dividend Champions

This page is the home of the UK Dividend Champions list tracking UK companies with the longest dividend growth history. 

It is directly inspired by David Fish’s US Dividend Champions spreadsheet. It’s a resource that is used as a starting point to identify and screen dividend growth stocks for the UK. 

The list is updated monthly and this since March 2020.

The “pandemic wreck” continues its huge toll on the UK Dividend Champions list. After the June 2020 hecatomb, 15 more UK CCC stocks were excluded of the list in July due to their dividend reduction or cut. A sheet named “Changes” list all the stocks removed from the CCC list.

Witholding Tax rate

Typically, there is no withholding tax on dividends paid by UK companies under domestic law, although 20% withholding tax generally applies to distributions paid by a REIT from its tax-exempt rental profits (subject to relief under a tax treaty).
