    Need some help locating some data. Happy to purchase it - I've tried contacting the two more prominent dividend websites with no response.

    I'm after the gross (plus franking %) dividend history for the ASX200 for the last 10+ years if anyone can assist or guide me.
    So something like:
    Ticker, ex-div date, gross amount, franking %

    Any ideas?

    BKRinvesting,

    if a Commsec customer have you tried their scanning tool , it will be tiresome ( or at least was when i used it a lot )

    also i note both my platforms stop on div data before 2011/2012 ( much to my disappointment )

    this website may help ( but maybe not tell all the story you want to hear )

    ShareDividends.com.au - Australian Company Share Dividend History, Forecasts, Ex-Dividend Dates for Share Investors

    Dividend History - 12 Year Dividend History - ShareDividends.com.au - Australian Company Share Dividend History, Forecasts, Ex-Dividend Dates for Share Investors

    PLEASE NOTE i have never used this part of the website ... i have no idea if it is value for money

    hope i have helped

    Thanks all,
    Indeed I'm after the data for each individual share.
    My mate gave me a list of the ASX200 companies for the last 10 years (including those that have now gone), but I'm trying to avoid manually compiling close to 400 companies worth of dividend payments if I can.
    I have contacted the above dividend websites via email a few weeks ago and ever heard back. Perhaps I'll try again tomorrow

    sadly my trading platforms have started limiting the divs to the previous 5 years

    i am assuming you don't trust the the packaged figures put out by the fund managers ( and couldn't blame you if that is the case )

    now one thing to watch out for are share splits and consolidations ( DXS comes to mind as one example .)

    good luck on your research

    hundreds of places to search , and not always pleasant surprises await

    but i hadn't got to the 'pay for info' part before , the free div. scanner has been all i required in the past ,

    i had been put on to it by someone else ,on a different forum , so just passing a good deed on a little further around the circle .

    good luck
