An interim dividend is declared and paid by the directors subject to the members approval (at the AGM after the accounts have been laid before the members or members written resolution). A final dividend is a dividend approved by the members either in general meeting or by writen resolution. I think these used to be shown as proposed dividends before the latest FRS on events after the balance sheet date or final dividend paid if approved by the members in the year. I believe an interim dividend should be paid in cash but that a final dividend as it is approved by the members could be credited to a directors loan account at the date of approval rather than paid in cash

With a cash dividend, you receive the amount of money that relates to the number of shares you hold when a dividend is declared at the companys AGM (ie if a dividend of 10cent per share is called & you have 10 shares you will receive €1) However you could have the option of not receiving the cash but instead using it to purchase more shares in the company.

The Ex date is the last day which the seller will get the declared dividend. It is generally two trading days before the record date. The record date is the date which the dividend is assigned to the owner on the company's record books. The difference exists because of the time lag between the actual sale of the stock and when it's recorded on the company's books. So if you buy a stock on the day after the Ex date, the seller will still get the dividend because his/her name will appear on the company's books on the record date.

Cum-dividend (CD) comes before Ex-dividend (XD). A stock is said to be CD indicates that the company is paying out dividend in the near future which serves like a preempt notice to investors. The company would have announced the amount of dividend to be paid out but has yet to. If the shareholder sells a CD stock, he/she is not entitled to the dividend. There has to be a cut off date that the company has to set, so as to confirm the list of shareholders to receive dividend. When the list is finalized, the stock is said to go XD. Once XD status is declared, the shareholder who sells his/her shares will still be entitled the dividends, while the new owner will not.
