Hi Patrick. Alright awesome. So if I understand you correctly, there's no difference in the way dividends are taxed by SARS between the two types of funds.
The other huge benefit of VT is that I can buy fractional shares of US-domiciled ETFs on IBKR which really simplifies my contributions and reinvesting. And it doesn't seem like this is possible with non-US ETFs on the platform (?)
Correct

Cool I never actually knew they offered that.

All other things being equal, if your record keeping is impeccable accumulating will come out a minute fraction ahead due to you saving re-investment fees. The problem is that it's incredibly hard to prove to SARS that the current price of an accumulating ETF isn't actually what the share ticker says but that it's in fact much lower as the ticker price includes reinvested dividends.

I don't feel like having that future fight with SARS so I buy VWRD instead of VWRA. My brokerage fees to re-invest dividends are only around 0.08% in any case.

Ps. The estate duty on US held stocks only becomes higher than SA estate duty at over $200k, plus you can claim back the dividend taxes paid to the US government, and the TER of VT is only 0.09% vs 0.22% for VWRD. Just something to consider...

Never heard of them. Minimum fees are much higher than Interactive Brokers (https://mexem.co.za/why-mexem/), whats the benefit?
