If you are invested in Shell I hope you have the 'B' shares as there is (as you probably know) a 'withholding tax' on these 'A' shares amounting to 15% of the dividend

Difference between RDSA&RDSB

Difference Between RDSA and RDSB
• Categorized under Business | Difference Between RDSA and RDSB

RDSA vs RDSB

Royal Dutch Shell is a company that is associated with oil and gas. It has global operations with its headquarters in The Hague, Netherlands and has a registered office in London, United Kingdom. As a company, it is often referred to simply as Shell. In the present, it is the second largest energy company in the world and fifth largest company overall. As a gas and oil company, its activities include exploration of gas and oil reservations, production, refining, and distribution of oil around the globe. It is also a company that dabbles in petrochemicals, power generation, and trading. With the current trend of renewable energy in response to climate change, the company has been involved in biofuels, hydrogen, solar and wind power.

As a business, the company is registered in the stock market as RDSA and RDSB. These are the classifications of shares wherein each share is a share of the company. Both shares have identical rights but have different characteristics. For example, RDSA is associated with the original Royal Dutch Shell Company. It is Dutch listed and complies with the Dutch tax system. For people who have these kinds of shares, there is a Dutch withholding tax on the shares divided on the rate of 15-25 per cent. This is in accordance with the Divide Access Mechanism that the company imposes on its company shares.
Also, the default currency to pay the dividends is in Euros, the currency adopted by the Dutch government.

Both RDSA and RDSB shares are traded in three stock exchange centers – London, Amsterdam, and New York.

The RDSA shares also have control of the 57 per cent of the company. The shareholders do not have voting power in the company, but they receive the assets before the other shareholders of RDSB in case of a bankruptcy.

On the other hand, the shareholders of RDSB are associated with Shell Transport and Trading, the company’s shipping arm which is based in London, United Kingdom. Since Shell Transport and Trading is a company in itself, thus it is listed as a United Kingdom company and has shareholders of its own. As a British company, it is under the tax system of the United Kingdom. With respect to the Divide Access Mechanism of the company, these shares don’t have withholding tax since these shares are U.K.-sourced dividends. The company should prove to the Dutch tax inspectors that these shares are sourced directly from U.K. income.

RDSB controls the remaining 43 per cent of the company’s total shares and pays in pound sterling (the U.K.’s currency) when it comes to pay dividends. Also, shareholders of RDSB have voting power in the company but cannot receive assets until the RDSA shareholders get their share of the assets in a bankruptcy scenario.

Summary:

1.RDSA and RDSB shares differ in the location where they are listed – RDSA is formerly

Dividend rate

Enquiry to any A shareholders who receive their dividends in Sterling.

Can you confirm the amount paid per share net of Dutch withholding tax ?

The registrars told me in a telephone enquiry that the payment was 0.3712p (for the last dividend in June) which is the same amount as that paid on the B shares.

The reason for my enquiry is that there appears to be a tax advantage for basic rate taxpayers in receiving dividends on foreign equities as the foreign withholding tax should be credited against the UK 7.5% dividend tax.

oil crash
22 Jun '17
oil looks like it is heading for $40 / barrel again. I suppose the question is how long will it stay down there for. I hope BP and RDS dont go selling off assets as these are the two best oil producers listed in my mind. I hold BP but dont hold RDS yet. If they cut the dividend and the share prices drops I will see that as a buying opportunity. The fundamentals for oil are great:

I prefer to hold the big oil producers rather than the tiddly oil exploration companies. Been burnt too many times on AIM so I avoid it now

Difference between RDSA&RDSB
21 May '17
To begin, taxes are a key difference between the two issuances. The difference is due to this construct called the "dividend access mechanism." The B shares have the dividend access mechanism, while the A shares do not. What the dividend access mechanism allows B shareholders to do is to forego withholding tax (15% under Dutch law, verified by the Dutch Revenue Service). Withholding tax reduces the size of your investment earnings, so taking the right steps to not be subject to this is highly advised.

So, what is a withholding tax? Why is a withholding tax present? Quite simply, it is Dutch law: "Any payment by the Company will be subject to Dutch withholding tax (unless an exemption is obtained under Dutch law or under the provisions of an applicable tax treaty)". The withholding tax just means that 15% of your dividend received is cut. So, you'll effectively receive 85% in a net payout.

Conclusion

So the company is already FCF positive after its dividends. Now, it is in a position where its operating environment is improving, which will result in even higher cash flows in the future. Therefore I believe that the current high dividend yield of the stock is safe. And because a dividend yield of 7% that is sustainable is more than enough return over the long term, investors should seriously consider buying this stock.

If you break down the REAL results, the dividend is not safe!!!

The dividend as another guy has pointed out is financed by debt and asset disposals!! DYOR

Unless oil prices rise above $60 soon that divi will envitably be cut...

Neil Woodford slams bp and shell
5 May '17
Neil Woodford, Britain’s most prominent income investor, has come down firmly on the side of those who think the oil giants’ dividends are unsustainable.

He doesn’t mince his words. “I believe that both BP and Shell have unsustainable dividends that are being financed by a combination of debt and asset disposal. In effect, these companies are liquidating themselves rather than facing up to the need for a dividend cut,” he wrote in his blog on Friday.

“The only thing that can save them from that eventuality, in my opinion, is a return to sustainably higher oil prices – something that I think is very unlikely to happen.”

If you're not trolling then it might be worth reading up on Shell's dividend history. There have been hard times before and there will be hard times in the future. I think most of us see things the opposite way to you. We don't think the dividend will be cut and think that the SP will eventually catch back up to where it should be.
