Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders, and synthetic rubber, announced today that its board of directors has approved a quarterly dividend of $ 0.08 per share. The dividend is a cash distribution payable to registered shareholders on April 22, 2021 at the close of business on April 8, 2021.
Trinseo is a limited liability company under Luxembourg law. Under current Luxembourg tax law, distributions to shareholders on the repayment of equity or share bonuses are not subject to Luxembourg withholding tax. Distributions made by Trinseo before 2020 were equity repayments or share bonuses and were therefore not subject to Luxembourg withholding tax.
This quarterly distribution counts as dividend on the common shares and is subject to withholding tax at 15% under Luxembourg law. Trinseo will deduct this tax from the dividends paid to our shareholders and will pass this tax on to the Luxembourg tax authorities.
Certain withholding tax exemptions or reductions may apply to Shareholders based on Luxembourg tax legislation or applicable income tax treaties. Shareholders should consult their own tax advisers regarding the possibility of applying for available refunds with the Luxembourg tax authorities. Trinseo SA’s RCSL number is B153549.
The above discussion does not cover all of the tax issues that may and may not be relevant to a particular shareholder. Shareholders are strongly encouraged to consult their own tax advisor on the tax consequences of Luxembourg withholding taxes, the availability of tax treaty exemptions or benefits, or other tax considerations of U.S. federal, state, local and foreign taxes in relation to Trinseo issued Dividends or the US government for advice on purchasing, owning, and disposing of our common stock.
