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).
