Does Vivid Money B.V. pay dividends?
Yes, if you are entitled to receive dividends, they will be credited to your account within 2 business days after Vivid Money has received these from the issuer.
Kindly note that taxation will, in most cases, already be withheld by the issuing company and can be reclaimed in your annual tax return. Dividend tax is levied on companies that pay dividends to their shareholders. Dividend income from shares in the United States is typically subject to a withholding tax rate of 30%.
How do dividends work with accumulating and distributing ETFs?
The dividend payout will differ depending on the ETF:
With accumulating ETFs (ACC), the fund manager reinvests any paid-out dividends into the fund without any additional cost.
With distributing ETFs (DIST), dividends are paid out to investors. This is, you’ll receive cash flow that can be used as per your preference.
