South Korea: Depositary Receipts - New documentation required for pension funds and non-profit organisations

19.07.2018

Effective

immediately

Clearstream Banking1 informs customers that Form 72-2, provided by pension funds and non-profit organisations for relief at source on dividends from South Korean Depositary Receipts (DRs), will no longer be accepted.

Impact on customers

Form 72-2 is no longer accepted for pension funds and non-profit organisations.

For final beneficial owners that have already submitted a Form 72-2, the form remains valid until its expiry date of three years after its issuance date, if there is no change in circumstances.

After that date, only a certificate of residence or any other original documents supporting and substantiating the status of the pension fund or non-profit organisation will be allowed.

Pension funds and non-profit organisations that are currently not covered by a Form 72-2 must provide a certificate of residence or any other original documents supporting and substantiating their status instead of a Form 72-2.

Further information

For further information, customers may contact the Clearstream Banking Tax Help Desk or Clearstream Banking Client Services or their Relationship Officer.
