I have recently discovered that Corner Trader is unable to offer the process of the W8-BEN form and therefore US ETF dividends are paid out with 30% withholding tax rather than 15%. I was advised by Corner Trader that I can use GlobeTax to process my claim to the lost 15%.
Has anyone used the recommended GlobeTax service? Have you had good experiences? Are there any alternative options for me? I can’t do this myself in any way can I as I believe I need a recognised intermediary I think - let me know if my memory is wrong though.
I think this is another reason for me to long term look to move everything to IB from Corner Trader. Frustrated by a number of points with Corner Trader and the extra costs are really beginning to add up.
