Canada: New updated beneficial owner list for relief at source and quick refund


Clearstream Banking1 would like to inform customers that effective


the beneficial owner list, used when requesting relief at source or quick refund on dividends from Canadian equities and trust instruments has been updated and replaced with a new version.

Impact on customers

Relief at source and quick refund requests submitted with the old beneficial owner template will be accepted until 31 January 2017. Customers are however, strongly encouraged to already start using the new template.

The old beneficial owner template will consequently no longer be accepted by Clearstream Banking as of 1 February 2017, and requests will only be accepted when submitted using the new version only.
