No mention of Tesco then. Phew.

Only the bits that Spain doesn't own.

Does it really matter who owns what?

Anything that upsets the Daily Mail and their readership is fine by me...

Lets hope they dont try and take it home....

"Does it really matter who owns what?"


My wife had shares in Abbey National

Spain owns Abbey National, now Santander.

As a result my wife has Spanish income tax deducted from her dividends.

"As a result my wife has Spanish income tax deducted from her dividends."

Actually she has a Spanish withholding tax (of 19%) deducted, for which she can claim a credit on her tax return.

She might find this helpful in that respect

Anything you say.

It's too complicated for me.

I was just going by a letter from Santander which said that her dividend was subject to Spanish income tax.

And I was trying to be helpful by pointing out that your wife can claim a credit.

Why isn't any kind of tax credit like that done for you by the bank on your behalf as a good customer service.

On the basis of what morddwyd and the FE are saying, I now wouldn't trust them with brass farthing investments, not that I've got many of them spare these days!
