How are dividends paid on stock held in my International trading account?

Dividends are generally credited to your International Trading Account on the business day following the dividend payment date, although dividends from non-US stocks may take longer.

The payment will not be transferred to your nominated Australian bank account automatically.

To convert funds back to Australian dollars, please log in to your account and submit a withdrawal request online or you can call the International Desk on 1300 361 170 (24 hours on US trading days) or +61 2 9115 1531 if calling from overseas.

Please note: To reinvest your dividends, please contact the international desk on the numbers above to provide your instructions.
