  1. Hey you can enroll in international share purchase plans, I am as part of my ESPP. This way I don’t have to pay brokerage through Morgan Stanley. You still pay tax on the dividend but it’s not withheld, to not pay US and ATO tax you also need to fill in the correct withholding forms that way all of the dividend is used for reinvestment.
