    Hi basic questions here.
    Just wondering when do companies announce how much dividends they will pay, is it on the ex-dividend date or on the dividend pay date or somewhere else like financial report for that period?
    Cheers,

    This.

    A quick look at companies when they announce their results to the ASX website would have answered the question.

    Thanks for that. Better to ask I guess

    Wasn't sure if dividend totals were in the reports prior

    Its normally, but not always, when they issue their preliminary reports and usually the dividend entitlement date is the same time to reward their long term holders rather than the day traders.

    Sometimes they haven't decided at the report stsge or do set different dates though this is unusual and most likely from small companies.
