    Total shambles, how long do you have to wait for dividends
    e.g. Barclays dividend paid 18/9 got credited to account 22/9 (that's their own stock mind you) Royal Dutch Shell also paid 18/9 ... no sign of it yet, now 7 working days.

    In a non Barclays account paid 18/9 credited overnight time to move i feel.

    Well that's just weird. I recently sold my holding in a company, after the ex div date. Barclays Not-So-Smart-Investor have (as per my ADR instruction) reinvested the dividend, so I am now the (slightly puzzled) owner of six shares in a company I had already dumped.

    In the helpful help pages of Barclays Stockbrokers (still available when I Googled), it says that, to qualify for ADR, I must "hold at least one share in [my] portfolio from the issuing company on the day the dividend is credited to [my] account".

    Which is today. And I don't.

    Guess the bugs are still busy.

    Can someone confirm the download function is defintely gone and not hidden somewhere?

    I have used barclays for years mainly for direct shares and not funds...but as I am selling down shares in favour of funds so I will reduce use of barclays. Don't like the funds charges, do like the lower shares charges (than before). So will stay for now but perhaps move later. What a mess.

    I suggest you don't leave until you have received your dividend. Leaving in the period between the ex-div date and the payment date means the div will be received by Barclays, but you won't have an account with them for it to be paid into (and then passed on.

    My experience was that any shares that were xd when I moved my account will still pay the divi to Barclays. Only when they have all been received by them do they send the cash to your new broker.
