In which year is dividend taxable

Limited company has financial year ended 31/12/08.

Dividend declared July 2009 and paid immediately.

In the shareholders personal returns, is this a 2008/9 entry (because it relates to year ended 31.12.08) or 2009/10 entry because that's the year in which it was paid.

Basic stuff so apologies in advance.
