CFD Dividend Adjustment

Positions in the Index and stock CFDs are subject to possible dividend adjustments. A dividend adjustment is applied when a position passes its ex-dividend date, meaning when a position is left open at the settlement time of the previous trading day.

For long positions, the dividend adjustment is credited to the client's account; in case of short positions, the dividend adjustment is debited from the client’s account. The values in the columns Long and Short in the widget below show the amount of dividends in the quote currency of the corresponding CFD instrument paid/charged per 1 contract.

In the event of a dividend payment on a single stock CFD, the economic effect of the corporate action for CFD holders will be generally reflected as if they had been holding the underlying security. Dividends are booked on the ex-date and payed on the pay-date. For long positions on share CFDs dividend amount is reduced by the withholding tax rate. Resulting percentage of dividends received by the client after withholding tax is shown in the table below:

Market % client receives on long position % client pays on short position
Austria 72,5 100
Belgium 85,0 100
Denmark 85,0 100
Finland 85,0 100
