Dividends from EU in ISA

Quick question.

If I buy an EU based stock, (German) that pays dividends, inside a UK ISA , are there any taxes or charges deducted from said dividend?

Im thinking something similar to the US 15% witholding tax for US stocks.

Thanks for reading :slightly_smiling_face:

Yeah, there will with holding tax on EU dividends which will differ from county to country.

I think Germany has a withholding tax rate of 25%, with an additional surcharge tax (making it essentially 26.375%)

Think thats expensive enough to put me off :rofl:

Thanks for the information :+1:

Yes, that’s pretty much why I’ve stuck to UK stocks. I would love to invest in Swedish companies and the like, but 30% witholding tax? No thank you!

Its a lot. Then you have the potential to lose out on exchange rates too.

Doesn’t make sense…not for dividends that can be found in the UK for much cheaper.

Appreciate the advice :slightly_smiling_face:
