LONDON—Financial market infrastructure and service providers no longer need to discuss paying dividends in advance with the Bank of England, it said on Thursday.

The central bank had imposed the requirement in June last year, as part of a wider series of curbs on dividends aimed at ensuring firms had enough capital to see them through the COVID-19 pandemic.
