Does it really matter who owns what?

"Does it really matter who owns what?"

Yes.

My wife had shares in Abbey National

Spain owns Abbey National, now Santander.

As a result my wife has Spanish income tax deducted from her dividends.

"As a result my wife has Spanish income tax deducted from her dividends."

Actually she has a Spanish withholding tax (of 19%) deducted, for which she can claim a credit on her tax return.

She might find this helpful in that respect

Anything you say.

It's too complicated for me.

I was just going by a letter from Santander which said that her dividend was subject to Spanish income tax.

And I was trying to be helpful by pointing out that your wife can claim a credit.

Why isn't any kind of tax credit like that done for you by the bank on your behalf as a good customer service.

On the basis of what morddwyd and the FE are saying, I now wouldn't trust them with brass farthing investments, not that I've got many of them spare these days!
