To ensure that investment funds can benefit from the best possible performance applying the most favorable withholding tax (WHT) rates, KPMG Luxembourg has developed the KPMG WHT Health Check, a fully automated tool, especially designed for this purpose. The KPMG WHT Health Check will verify on a worldwide basis whether investment funds benefit from reduced WHT rates and/ or file WHT reclaims based on domestic law, Double Tax Treaties or EU law. KPMG Luxembourg analyses in more than 90 investment markets if WHT has correctly been applied to your funds.
