WITHHOLDING TAX When an investor earns income on investments from one country and is resident in another, they often have to pay tax in both countries under the different tax laws. The tax charged in the country where the income arises is known as Withholding Tax (WHT), because it is withheld when the income is paid. To help avoid this double taxation of the same income, numerous double taxation agreements (DTAs) are in place between many countries. The onus is on investors to ensure they pay the correct tax and therefore reclaim the amount to which they are entitled. Where a double taxation treaty (DTA) exists between an investors home country and the country of investment, investors are entitled to reclaim the difference between the foreign tax withheld (in the country of investment) and the tax deducted as a resident (in country of domicile). For investors making cross-border investments, dividend withholding tax can have considerable impact on the total returns on an investment portfolio.
