You can buy an ADR through a broker just as you would a U.S. security.
Converting ordinary shares into ADRs must be done through a broker or an investment advisor.
Dividends are paid in U.S. dollars and are generally taxable like dividends on U.S. shares. In addition, taxes may be withheld by the ADR Company’s local government. Depending on individual circumstances, foreign taxes withheld might be applied as credit against U.S. taxes or tax reclaim opportunities may be offered.
For dividend and corporate information, please visit www.adr.com. Using the DR Search function at the top of the screen, type in the company name or ticker and find dividend and other key information under the company's profile.
A registered holder is one whose name appears on the books of the depositary as a registrar; the registered holder is considered the owner of record. A beneficial holder is one whose holdings are held in a name other than their own, such as the name of a broker, bank or nominee.
ADR issuers have full information in English about themselves on their websites and are better tracked by the main U.S. financial websites.
