IRIS Dividend Service


Obtaining your clients dividend data can be a time consuming and laborious process. Our research shows that for an average sized practice the time spent on manually entering details from dividend vouchers, requesting missing vouchers from clients or searching reference material for the dividends paid by companies, is more than 37 hours per year.

The IRIS Dividend Service provides practitioners with details of dividends paid by UK listed companies, UK unit trusts and Open Ended Investment Companies. This information is stored in the central database and is integrated to IRIS Personal Tax and IRIS Trust Tax returns, so when completing tax returns you can enjoy significant time savings.
