The need to simplify withholding tax.

Our Services

Withholding tax is a statutory tax that is levied on a company when they are performing services in a region where they are a non-resident. The onus of collection rests with the local receiver of services to withhold a portion of between 5% to 35% of the payment value when paying a foreign supplier.

Double taxation agreements are in place primarily to determine the taxability of certain services as well as to reduce the withholding tax rates that are applied to these services. In numerous circumstances, the allocation of services as well as the application of the due withholding tax rate is not applied correctly by the receiver of services in-country.

S Tax has the experience and know-how of how to deal with difficult tax challenges in foreign markets.

Whether your business is still planning new market penetration or whether you have been dealing in a particular market for a number of years, withholding tax considerations are always at the forefront of business decisions. We provide you with a strategic partner that allows you to make informed decisions in international markets.

Withholding tax is the responsibility of the recipient of the services. Therefore, if your company receives services from foreign suppliers, you may be required to withhold tax on these foreign payments. S TAX helps you ensure that your company collects the correct amount of tax, in accordance with the application of double taxation agreements, and also provides in record time withholding certificates to your suppliers, thus limiting the risk of penalties in your local jurisdiction.
