Frequently Asked Questions

NAB first started paying dividends in 2005 with an 80% franked payment in July of that year and continued with twice-yearly dividend payments until December 2006. It resumed its distributions again in 2009, and the bank has paid twice yearly fully franked dividends − traditionally in July and December − every year since 2012.

Shareholders will automatically receive their dividends in cash unless they have given notice that they wish to participate in the dividend reinvestment plan (DRP).
