Dividend Withholding Tax

Foreign investment income is frequently taxed at a high statutory withholding rate. With over £30 billion of Withholding Tax deducted globally, many billions are left unclaimed by their rightful owners. Under double taxation treaties between various countries, Investors may be eligible to a lower treaty rate and may reclaim the Withholding Tax difference from the respective Foreign Tax Authority.

Most Financial Institutions do not maintain adequate in – house staff and infrastructure necessary to effectively file reclaims on behalf of their Funds and Investors and in certain cases have limited knowledge of the processes involved within the various jurisdictions and the requisite information required to file Withholding Tax reclaims with the multitude of Foreign Tax Authorities. Each country which offers a Withholding Tax refund mechanism has a range of intricate rules, regulations, legal interpretations, language and cultural barriers and deadlines.
