Navexa will automatically calculate dividend payments on your stock holdings.

When a dividend payment is automatically calculated, it requires you to check the amount is correct and 'Confirm' it.

Confirming a dividend means the Navexa system will no longer update that record if other data changes. For example, editing a historical trade will no longer recalculate the dividend payment.

It is good practice to confirm all of your dividends so that you can generate your tax reports with confidence everything is correct.

How to know when dividends need confirming?

On the 'Overview' page, a green circle with a number in it, will appear when dividends need confirming.
