    Hi all,

    I understand that the UK dividend tax is 0%, but what if a UK registered company is also trading in the German stock exchange. is the 25% german dividend tax applied in this case or since this is a UK based company the dividend tax would be 0% regardless of where the stock is traded?

    Thanks

    The dwt is applied based on the tax residence of the company, so if a UK tax resident comp then UK why applies.

    I assume that the first 2 letters of the ISIN code of each stock refers to the country where that specific company is tax resident. Am I correct?

    thats which country stock exchange its listed on is based.

    In most cases I think you would be fairly ok to assume the company is also tax resident there....but you might get caught on some.
