Further Updates: U.S. Withholding Tax of 10% on Publicly Traded Partnership (PTP) Interest

Further to our earlier notices on the new 10% US Withholding Tax to be imposed on PTP interest, please be informed that due to the complexity of the withholding tax under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 1446(f):

(a) with effect from 27 December 2022, OCBC Securities will cease to accept all Buy orders and transfer-in requests for US PTP securities;* and

(b) with effect from 1 January 2023, OCBC Securities will also cease to accept Sell orders.*  

We urge you to review your current holdings with us.

If you are a non-US resident who holds any PTP securities in your portfolio, consider taking any action you deem fit before 1 January 2023. Clients with existing positions in the PTP securities can still continue to hold or transfer-out the positions to other brokers (fees and charges applies).

For a non-exhaustive list of PTP securities (compiled from external sources), kindly click here (last updated 20 December 2022).

Do note that this list may change from time to time without prior notice and we are not responsible for the timeliness, accuracy, and completeness.

Protect your Singpass login credentials

Scammers are now sending phishing SMSes to obtain your Singpass login credentials.

If you click on the links in such SMSes, you will be taken to a spoofed Singpass login page and asked to key in your Singpass ID and password.

Thereafter, you may be directed to a spoofed login page and prompted to enter your credentials and One-Time Password (OTP). The scammers will then use these to fraudulently apply for credit cards or open banking or trading accounts.

Please take heed when asked for your Singpass login credentials. Do not let your guard down.
