Is that all their ETF's? Or all their american-based ETF's?
We would like to inform you about changes that have been made to our policy for withholding lowered tax treaty rates (‘relief at source’) on US income (e.g. dividend).
As of 30-06-2020, we will only apply lowered tax treaty rates on income on a selected list of US products. These changes have been made due to the regulatory and operational setup that is required in order to provide relief at source on US income. For US products available through our platform, but not on this list, the statutory tax rate will be applied.

And more bad news:
None of the Vanguard ETFs are in the supported list.
So I think this means that even if you fill in the W8-BEN form you'll be charged 30% tax rather than 15% on dividends. I'm not sure if you can offset the 30% with Revenue or if you can only offset 15%, does anyone know?
