LIGHTNING RELEASES: New York, NY (1/24/2014)– Globe Tax Services, Inc. (GlobeTax), the world’s leading provider of tax relief, recovery and reporting services to the financial services and investment community announced today the launch of an improved DR News RSS Feed. The updated feed takes into account that existing subscribers are primarily DTCC participant banks and brokers looking for current and historic income events information related to American Depositary Receipt (“ADR”) programs. With that in mind, the new DR News RSS Feed has been developed to only include DTCC Important Notices related to income events where tax reclaim is possible. This eliminates thousands of items from the feed which are not subject to withholding tax relief procedures and instructions.
At launch-time, the new feed includes events going back to January 2010 and improved search functionality using specific data points including CUSIP, Issuer Name, Country of Issuance, Record Date and Payment Date, among others.
Users may subscribe to the new DR News RSS Feed at http://www.globetax.com.
For optimized access, GlobeTax recommends subscribers use an RSS Reader.
