In today’s global economic context, the actors of the Financial Sector (Banks, Insurers, Asset Managers, Family Office) are currently experiencing low return on debt and equity investment.

The withholding tax applied on the incomes derived from the investments significantly decreases the net return on income (generally from 15% to 30% for dividends) and therefore recovering the excess of tax based on the reduced double tax treaty, national provisions or CJEU (European Court of Justice) base rate will help you enhancing financial clients’ portfolio performance.

Tax reclaim is a fastidious, complex and time-consuming procedure with heavy documentation requirements, highly dependent on local tax authority’s reactivity and requirements. Each jurisdiction has its own withholding tax rates depending on the investor type and investment country, its eligibility criteria to benefit from reduced rates, filing procedures which require broad and deep technical expertise.
