Re: Dividends: what % do you get?

I've just calculated a dividend repayment from IG Index spread betting, and it is only 75% of the declared divided. This seems to confirm the 10% compulsory minimum tax on shares plus their '15% cut'.

Note IG also didn't answer my question on the dividends paid when I asked via their help board, perhaps this derisory amount explains why.

I have recently opened a CFD account with them, I wonder if this any different and they pay the full 90%?

I have just spoken to IG about this and they insist that they return 90% of the dividend with both spread betting and CFDs, the same as what you would get if you owned the shares. Evidently the calculation above was based on a Dutch based security, despite being an LSE stock, and they have a 25% withholding tax on the shares which explains the figure.

Interesting, I've had plenty of dividends from spreadbet holdings in the past, but have never actually checked how much % they have given me!

So which spreadbet companies give the most dividend % these days? (there are a few figures earlier on in the thread, but they are from 3 years back)
