Dividends from ADR shares

Dividends from ADR shares

Didn't find your answer?

Its been a while since i came across one of these: A client has received ad divided from an American Depositary Receipt for a UK Co.

The stockbroker's consolidated tax statement shows it as a UK dividend - but no tax credit attached.

What is the correct place to enter this on the Tax return, UK Dividend, Foreign Dividend, Other Income? and do I treat the amount received as the gross amount, and work out the tax credit on that? 

Thanks

The last time I looked into this was several years ago. With that proviso in mind, the treatment follows that of the underlying shares, so UK dividend with 10% tax credit.

To double check the broker's calculation of net/gross, you can look up the dividend per share on the UK company's website and cross check from that.
