Dividend Payment - PID tax deductions


Further to the announcement on 21 July 2021, AEW UK REIT plc ("AEWU" or "the Company") made dividend payments on 31 August 2021 to shareholders on the register as at 30 July 2021.  The dividend of 2.00 pence per share was designated 1.00 pence per share as an interim property income distribution ("PID") and 1.00 pence per share as an interim ordinary dividend ("non-PID").


The Company has been advised by its registrar, Link Group (the 'Registrar'), that some investors, who had previously elected to receive PID distributions gross, have received the distribution net of 20% withholding tax. Accordingly, the Registrar will be contacting all impacted investors with details of the additional distribution to be paid to rectify this issue.
