Are you looking to boost your income portfolio with some quality ASX dividend shares? Then you might want to consider the ones listed below.

Here鈥檚 what you need to know about these ASX dividend shares:

Accent Group Ltd聽(ASX: AX1)

The name Accent may not be familiar, but I bet readers will know many of this footwear retailer鈥檚 store brands. Accent is the company behind the likes of HYPEDC, Platypus, Sneaker Lab, Stylerunner, and The Athlete鈥檚 Foot.

Its stores and their online businesses have been booming over the last 12 months despite the pandemic. This culminated in Accent delivering a strong half year result last month. It revealed a 6.6% increase in total sales to $541.3 million and a massive 57.3% lift in net profit after tax to $52.8 million.

The good news is that the second half started strongly, putting Accent in a position to deliver a bumper full year profit result in August.

Analysts at Bell Potter are positive on the company and have a buy rating and $2.65 price target on its shares. The broker is also forecasting an 11.9 cents per share dividend in FY 2021. Based on the current Accent share price, this will mean a fully franked 5.1% yield.

Coles Group Ltd聽(ASX: COL)

Another company that has been performing very strongly over the last 12 months is Coles. The supermarket operator has benefited greatly from a shift in consumer behaviour caused by the pandemic.聽

However, with the company now cycling the elevated sales period from a year earlier, its second half performance is not expected to be as strong as the first. In fact, management has even warned that sales could decline during the half. This has put pressure on the Coles share price, bringing it down to a level which many brokers believe is very attractive.

One of those is Goldman Sachs. Its analysts have a buy rating and $20.70 price target on its shares currently. The broker remains positive on its medium term outlook thanks to its strong market position, Refreshed Strategy, and focus on automation.

Goldman is聽forecasting a 62 cents per share dividend in FY 2021. Based on the current Coles share price, this represents a fully franked 4% yield.
