Shareholder's Services


Electronic communications offer mutual benefits for the Company, for shareholders and for the environment.

The Company already encourages shareholders to receive certain corporate documentation and publications electronically via its website.

At the 2007 AGM, shareholders approved an enabling resolution which allows the Company, in due course, to establish e-communications as the normal means of communication with individual shareholders, unless they choose otherwise.

The Company has not yet implemented that change, but in the meantime, we continue to encourage all shareholders to elect voluntarily to use e-communications as their preferred means of receiving Company material. Shareholders can sign up for this facility by logging onto our website at

On-line facilities for shareholders

You can access our Annual and Interim Reports and copies of recent shareholder communications on-line at

To register for on-line access, go to and navigate through to Investor Relations/Shareholder Information, and click on the service you require. To access some of these services you will first be required to apply on-line for a User ID.

Once you have registered for on-line access, you can make on-line enquiries about your shareholding and advise the company of changes in personal details.

On-line proxies

Shareholders may also submit forms of proxy for shareholder meetings on-line at

Beneficial holders of shares with 'information rights'

Beneficial owners of shares who have been nominated by the registered holder to receive information rights under section 146 Companies Act 2006 should direct any communications and enquiries to the registered holder of the shares and not to the Company or its Registrar.

Dividend Re-Investment Plan

You can choose to invest your cash dividends in purchasing Taylor Wimpey shares on the market under the terms of the Dividend Re-Investment Plan. For further information on the Plan and how to join, go to and navigate through to Investor Relations/Shareholder Information/Dividend Re-Investment Plan.

Dividend mandates

We strongly encourage all shareholders to receive their cash dividends by direct transfer to a bank or building society account. This ensures that dividends are credited promptly to shareholders without the cost and inconvenience of having to pay in dividend cheques at a bank. If you wish to use this cost-effective and simple facility, complete and return the dividend mandate form attached to your dividend cheque. Additional mandate forms may be obtained from Capita Registrars.

Duplicate share register accounts

If you are receiving more than one copy of our Annual Report, it may be that your shares are registered in two or more accounts on our register of members. You might wish to consider merging them into one single entry. Please contact Capita Registrars who will be pleased to carry out your instructions in this regard.

Low-cost share dealing services

We have arranged both telephone and on-line share dealing services for UK residents to buy or sell up to 25,000 worth of Taylor Wimpey plc shares. The services are operated by Capita Registrars. To use the services either visit or telephone +44 (0)871 664 0454 (Calls cost 10p per minute plus network extras). To deal, you will need to provide your surname, postcode, date of birth and investor code (which can be found on your share certificate).

Taylor Wimpey and 'CREST'

Taylor Wimpey shares can be held in 'CREST' accounts, which do not require share certificates. This may make it quicker and easier for some shareholders to settle stock market transactions. Shareholders who deal infrequently may, however, prefer to continue to hold their shares in certificated form and this facility will remain available for the time being, pending the likely general introduction of dematerialised shareholdings in due course.

Taylor Wimpey share price

Our share price is printed in most UK daily newspapers and is also available on our website It appears on Ceefax (BBC1 page 232) and C4 Teletext (page 520) and may be obtained by telephoning the Financial Times Cityline Service, telephone: +44 (0)906 843 0000 and enter the Company's four digit code which is 4177 (calls cost 60p per minute).

Gifting shares to charity

If you have a small holding of Taylor Wimpey plc shares, you may wish to consider gifting them to charity. You can do so through 'ShareGift', which is administered by a registered charity, Orr Mackintosh Foundation Limited. Shares gifted are re-registered into the name of the charity, combined with other donated shares and then sold through stockbrokers who charge no commission. The proceeds are distributed to a wide range of recognised charities. For further details, please contact Capita Registrars or approach ShareGift directly on or telephone them on + 44 (0)20 7337 0501.
