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 UK list was updated importantly this month by adding missing companies in the financials sector; a few companies which were removed from the list were reinstated this month as they finally maintained or increased their dividend in 2020. Finally some companies were removed from the list due to their dividend reduced or cut. These changes were done thanks to the contribution of J. C. Hyjun, many thanks to him. Please do not hesitate to contact me to improve the UK CCC list. A sheet named “Changes” list all the stocks removed from, reinstated to or added to 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).
