Commission etc. taken from dividend?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks. Newbie question.

I have some shares in Icahn Enterprise LLC (NASDAQ:IEP). Was expecting a $1.75 quarterly dividend and was paid 18th September. However, I received £1.1025 per share, which at the quoted exchange rate worked out to approx $1.445. The dividend was paid at the expected rate ($1.75) according to Icahn etc. so where did the remaining 30 cents go?

Is it all exchange commission, or are there other deductions too? Just after info so I know what to expect in future.

Many thanks!

Re the form, that would be my W-8BEN? Filled in when I joined.

Hey @Wisp111 - although I wouldn't be able to confirm directly as we do not offer financial or tax advice, the majority of regular clients will probably have needed to have filled in a W8Ben. :)

    • Public Health England estimate that a single dose of vaccine reduces symptomatic disease by only 35% against Delta.   SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern and variants under investigation (publishing.service.gov.uk)   So you're probably looking at 3 vaccine shots a year for the rest of your life and oh, the Lambda variant is here.     Meanwhile DeSantis (Florida governor) tells Biden where to go.
