Second issue, dividends and other cash distributions paid by the new Dutch company may be subject to a 30% Dutch withholding tax. My only experience with something like this has been some Canadian stock I held. Dividends were subject to 15% Canadian withholding. It couldn't be recovered. I couldn't claim credit against US taxes because it was in my IRA. IOW, I lost 15% of my dividends, which in the US would not have been taxed until I withdrew funds from the IRA.
