Any taxes paid elsewhere can be subsequently offset according to the clauses of the pertinent tax treaty.
hi Goldtop,

any idea how one goes about this? if i had a US broker I would probably send them a W8-BEN but I am in fact with postfinance/BCV based in CH and so far the people I have talked to have never heard of such a form! i'm trying to recover 15% of my dividends: the BCV keep 30% on US stocks and then in the tax return for ZRH I get 15% back. but how does one get the remaining 15%?

any help appreciated. bill.
