When are dividends paid?

The interim dividend is usually declared in November and paid in February and the final dividend is usually declared in May and paid in August.

ADS holders are generally eligible for all dividends or other entitlements attaching to the underlying shares of Vodafone Group Plc and receive all cash dividends in US dollars.

What fees will be deducted from dividends?

A fee of $0.015 per ADS is currently deducted from interim dividends (usually paid each February) and a fee of $0.02 per ADS is currently deducted from final dividends (usually paid each August).

Why are fees deducted from dividends? 

Vodafone uses the fees it receives from dividends to offset, in part, the costs related to SEC registration, including Sarbanes-Oxley related expenses, stock exchange listing fees and administering the ADS facility.
