Accounting policy

Dividend distributions to the Company’s shareholders are recognised as liabilities in the Group’s financial statements in the period in which the dividends are approved by the Company’s shareholders or Directors, where appropriate.

The dividend declared after the year end is not reflected as a dividend payable in the financial statements of that year, but will be reflected as an appropriation of retained profits for the following year.
