Hey @Sam_z

When you buy stock you may get dividend payouts. If you buy and hold the stock through the ex dividend date you will get the payout 1/2 working days after the pay date. This is only for non-leveraged accounts, e.g. share dealing, ISA. 

With leveraged accounts (e.g. CFD and spread betting) you will not be credited dividends. We adjust the price ont he ex dividend date (you can find a video explaining this by following the link below) so you don't gain or lose from the dividend payout.
