CB VAT are global specialists that provide international investors with a simple and seamless turnkey solution to recovering excess withholding taxes on foreign dividends.

 Countries impose withholding taxes on dividends paid to nonresidents because it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to collect the tax once the dividend has been paid. In order to avoid such situations, taxes are deducted from the dividend payment before it is paid to the investor. 

Historically a large portion of withholding taxes were seldom recovered due to a combination of complicated policies of foreign tax authorities and a minefield of complex procedures. However, when one takes into consideration that effective global tax reclamation can enhance the performance of a portfolio by upwards of 250 basis points or 2.5%, recovering withheld dividends can no longer be ignored.

Our thorough knowledge and understanding of complex international tax law, combined with our company’s extensive geographical footprint ensures that we resolve your specific claims both successfully and timeously.

With CB VAT you never lay out any money. Any fee charged is contingent and deducted from the successful recovery of dividends that were previously withheld. If we can’t recover you pay nothing!

The process to file a reclaim can be intricate, with distinct procedures, specific languages, filing requirements and cultural nuances in virtually every country. The good news is that, in order to recover your dividends, all we need is data and documentation.
