Hi, HP had a share split in 2015 that triggered a dividend payment. This was structured to not attract tax in the US. HP's FAQ notes " The separation occurred by means of a pro rata distribution to HP Co. shareholders of 100% of the outstanding shares of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Each HP Co. stockholder received one share of Hewlett Packard Enterprise common stock for every one share of HP Co. common stock held on October 21, 2015, the record date for the distribution. Consequently, the separation provided HP Co. stockholders with ownership interest in both HP Inc. (stock ticker HPQ) and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). These shares can now be traded independently. For example, if you held 100 shares of HPQ (HP Co.) before the separation, you would now hold 100 shares of HPQ and 100 shares of HPE. What are the income tax consequences of the distribution to stockholders in the US and Canada?It is intended that, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the distribution generally will be tax-free to HP Co. stockholders.Based on the information we have received the Canadian regulatory authorities, under Section 86.1(2)(e) of the Canadian Tax Act, the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company dividend distribution generally should be tax-free to Hewlett-Packard Company’s stockholders that received the dividend. " Does the same apply in Ireland? I notice that keytrade did not withhold tax on this split, so presumably was not an issue in Belgium. Other coupon payments had US withholding tax in the normal way. Thanks!
