I have just shared the full December 2020 issuance details for your information with details of the allocations and bids achieved.
Although the full issuance was not taken up in this case, there were a substantial number of bidders who were accepted for the first time, sharing the benefit to many new customers.
I will reply to other matters in this conversation separately as they’re a bit more complex
For those that are here for the bonds (and why not, they’re good value), are you using any of the rest of the app? Am I right in saying that you’ll just go where the market leads?
(No criticism implied - I’m just wondering how much conversion Dozens is getting from this loss-leader).
Dec bid accepted, much higher than the usual amount.
We can draw it out for a nice family holiday in the summer.
Anyone know the allocation for this month?
It is £100,000 and I try to keep this thread updated for reference (see OP)
This topic will include details of the current and past issuances of the Dozens Savings Plc Listed Fixed Interest bonds for customers’ reference in any conversation topic or question.

Good to see the Highest bid is quite high this time with the bigger share!
Also would be good to know how many bids are being made if possible?
To see if more people are bidding month by month? @robert
My fault for getting off topic.
All this info is provided in the linked post above
We know how many successful bids but not many total bids (including failed ones).
I understand the request, but I feel that we are already publishing a great deal of information, so I don’t think we will be adding that too.
Our goal is not to ‘gamify’ the bidding and issuance of bonds (by trying to calculate likely maximum accepted bids), but to make it easy for new customers to start their journey by being reassured seeing others taking part.
I do understand that reason for this, but OTOH how else are we supposed to pass the time during Lockdown 3.0? I completed Netflix in Lockdown 2!
£1000 failed for me in this months round
I’ll publish the full stats shortly, but I believe that the highest accepted bid this month was £1000, so it means that others managed to get a bid in before yours for that amount
sorry you missed out this time
£1000 worked for me, seems like I got lucky!
For the record I bid as soon as bidding opened so got in early
Ssh, don’t share the secret
Ah I missed out on them this time! Any idea when the next issuance will be?
bids for the next issuance will start on 1st Feb
Great news! Thanks for the swift reply
Do you expect Jan stats will be available before 1 Feb?
My bid for the bond accepted, really happy about that
This may not be the correct place to ask but let me try asking:
Do I have to pay a tax on the interest amount (I am in a high taxpayer category)
I am sure it is taxable … all interest is taxable however there is a cumulative tax allowance of £500 for higher taxpayers £1000 for basic rate and zero for additional rate tax payers.
I am not a tax advisor … check out moneysavingsexpert - personal savings allowance
