MasterCard dividend withheld


What does this mean? Does anyone know why the dividend was withheld?

I think it might mean that the fraction of the share that you hold is small enough that your dividend rounded to 0

That is what I thought it might have been. Based on what I currently own, I should’ve received something, but I think I had a very low amount on the ex div date, so must have been less than 1 pence.

@Motiv7 The dividend is indeed 0.00 because the fractional shares that you’re holding don’t amount to a dividend of 0.01.
As for the “You have been charged” part, it’s a technical error & we’ll correct it.

This is partly what puts me off investing in fractional dividend shares, as it might mean not receiving dividend amounts properly. Incentive to buy the full share I guess
