Globalisation and complexity of the economic environment are creating new challenges for asset managers and other financial market players.
Taxpayers face the risk of excess taxation in source countries on income from investments.
The exposure of asset managers and their clients to such risks creates the need for alternative solutions to address these new challenges. One such solution is to file tax reclaims which offer key benefits including enhanced financial performance and improved financial capabilities.
However, tax reclaims are known to be time-consuming procedures associated with a high administrative burden. They require the collection of numerous documents to comply with the domestic tax process of each country involved, as well as in-depth knowledge of international and local rules of taxation.
