Will I receive any kind of receipt, tax form or year-end statement for tax purposes?

All information around taxes and the tax forms can be found on the Lovinklaan website, namely here.

To download any statements available for you (this depends on your country), please log in to your Global Shares account. You can log in here: https://arcadis.globalsharesequity.co.uk/ or from an Arcadis office (or connected via Arcadis Tunnel) here: equitygateway.arcadis.com. You can find your statements in your Global Shares account under Resources -> Document Library

Why is my Equatex and Global Shares account showing up in my tax return forms?

European banks are required to inform local tax authorities of any savings and/or investment accounts which are held by the tax payer; this data then shows up in your tax return form.

Equatex used to be the plan administrator for the Global Share Plan, supported by EquatePlus as the online banking system. Equatex got replaced by a new plan administrator, Global Shares, with Equity Gateway as online banking system.
