When our brokerage provider pays your dividend, it will be less withholding tax. This is generally 15% for Australian tax residents who've submitted a completed W-8BEN tax form. You can learn more about the form here.

Withholding tax is only applied to dividends paid and not to your investments generally, including sell orders.
