      Hi ATL,

      No, only the money I actually received in my account. The excess dividend tax for 2018 won’t be returned until ~1.5 years into the future, and there are still too many uncertainties about that. But I expect I will be able to reclaim at least 188.10EUR for 2018. Not sure how it will work in case of legal cohabitation for stocks held in my name.

      The Belgian government will definitely like the extra money flowing into its coffers thanks to the lower French withholding tax! Also good for my position in Sanofi.

    Nice month, keep it up!

    Being French myself but living/working in Belgium, makes me wonder if I can find a way to pass through a FR broker 🙂 Which Broker do you use ? I am with Bolero.
