Tax Implications for US Investors in UK Stocks


Recommended Posts

I've had a tough time finding a definitive source on what the capital gains tax implications are for US citizens investing in UK stocks.  Recently been considering making an investment domiciled in the UK.


Just looking to see if anyone knows the answer - would be greatly appreciated.  Figured I might find a better and quicker response here than just looking on the internet (so far haven't found much).

Do you mean buying UK stocks in US based financial account (e.g. Fidelity, IB)? If so, it's the same as buying US stocks.

Do you mean buying UK stocks in UK based financial account for US citizen? If so, things are a bit complicated mostly because you have a foreign financial account that you have to report. There might also be issues with UK side taxing this account, but I am not sure about that.
