My Diageo Shares

Also, as the share schemes are Revenue approved you can benefit from generous PAYE savings (as long as you meet the holding periods and rules linked to the relevant plan).
The Diageo plc 2017 Irish Share Ownership Plan (also known as Profitshare) is a plan that gives you a choice of taking your Profitshare Bonus as either shares or cash. You can also add to this investment by electing to forego some of your pre-tax salary over 6 months and buy more Diageo shares. This plan element is commonly known as Salary Foregone. Your total share investment under the Profitshare plan should not exceed the Irish Revenue maximum annually.
The choice window is now open for you to elect how much of your Profitshare award to receive in cash or shares. the minimum amount you can receive in shares is 25%.
The choice window will close on Friday 27 August 2021 and you can amend your instruction up to this date.
You can use our useful worked examples to help you decide.
Save for the future by taking part in this simple savings programme and putting money aside each month directly from pay. Once you’ve completed your savings (usually over 3 or 5 years) you can choose to buy Diageo shares at a discounted price, or you can simply take back your savings.
