Your Dividend

What is Share of the Profits?

When you spend with a Midcounties Co-operative business you earn Share of the Profits points. This time it's based on transactions between 24 January 2021 to 22 January 2022.  At the end of each financial year, we share some of our profits with our members by turning those points into your Share of the Profits dividend.  The actual amount shared was voted on by our members at our Half Yearly Meetings in October.


How did you calculate my Share of the Profits?

We have used the points earned on your transactions during our 2021/2022 financial year – 24 January 2021 to 22 January 2022. At our Half Yearly Meeting in October, members approved a distribution value of half a penny per point, allowing us to calculate your Share of the Profits. If this is the first time you have earned a dividend then your initial £1 membership share has been deducted from that value.

If you’ve earned points through Central England Co-operative, Southern Co-operative and Chelmsford Star Co-operative during their 2021 financial year, you’ll see them in your statement in the ‘Additions and deductions’ section, recorded as ‘PLUS the amount earned with other co-operative societies’. In 2021, The Co-operative Group did not make a Share of the Profits payment to any members, including any Midcounties members, who traded with its businesses for that year.


What about the points on my spend after 22 January 2022?

Points earned after 22 January 2022 will remain on your balance and will not be included in this payment. They will count towards future dividend payments. You can view your points balances at any time, split by financial year, by logging into your online member dashboard


When will I receive my Share of the Profits dividend?

We will be communicating to all eligible members with their dividend prior to Christmas 2021. 


Can I change my payment option for this year? 

Unfortunately, you can no longer change your payment option for 2022. However, you can access your dashboard and change your payment option for future years.
