Withholding Tax (WHT) may be debited from our payments to you, depending on where you/your company are based. For companies that were incorporated in the UK, US, CA and most EU territories, there is a Double Taxation Treaty in force with the UK with a set rate of 0% to withhold.
Countries such as Italy, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand have a Double Taxation Treaty in force between themselves and the UK with reduced rates of withholding (i.e. above 0% but less than 20%).
For countries with no Double Taxation Treaty in force between them and the UK (e.g. Angola, Columbia, Peru), withholding tax will be deducted at the full rate of 20%.
If we withhold tax from our payments to you, we will supply you with an annual WHT certificate. Dependant on the tax rules of the country you/your company are a resident of, it may be possible to use this certificate as support for a reduction in the income tax liability owed to your home tax authority.
VAT If you are a UK tax resident, you will need to complete a VAT Self-Billing form in order for us to make payments that are automatically inclusive of VAT. In order to get registered for VAT invoicing please log into the portal and update your VAT status under Settings. From there the Client Admin team will send you an up to date self-billing form which you will need to fill in and send back. They will then get things set up at this end. Once that's all sorted you will start to receive the self-billing statement on your portal along sire your monthly statement in the 'Download Invoice' column as in the below screen grab.
If you’ve missed self-billing re-registration at the beginning of the year and need to raise invoices for missed payments please pop an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org who can help with that.
