Dividends

Simple question (hopefully)...if you have shares in a company (shares held using IG) how do you claim dividends issued by the companies who shares you hold?  I presumed that the cash would appear under the "money available to deal" heading but so far no cash has appeared so do I have to claim it somehow?  Thanks

Thanks for your post. 

The cash will be credited to your account 2 working days after the pay date of the dividend. You will have had to hold the shares through the ex dividend date. 

All the best

Thanks Charlotte.  On that basis any idea why I didn't receive the BP dividend from a month or so ago (approx 12th Aug)?  Also Shell is due?  Cheers

Charlotte thanks for reply.  On that basis any idea what happened to the Shell dividend from 6 weeks or so ago?  BP due today so will see what happens by next Tuesday.
