Frequently Asked Questions

Disclaimer: Vectigal is not a tax advisory company; therefore this literature should not be construed as offering tax advice.  All persons should consult with their tax and legal advisors with respect to tax issues.  Furthermore, this literature should not be taken as an offer to buy or sell any securities.

Q: I have tax reclaims.  How can Vectigal help me?

Vectigal can help you with immediate tax refunds in all jurisdictional tax markets.  Vectigal eliminates the lag time within the tax reclaim process.


Q: How soon can I get my tax reclaims if I work with Vectigal?

Refunds are paid on trade date + 1 (T+1) in all jurisdictional tax markets. Vectigal sends the tax reclaim on the same day as your net dividend and interest payment (refund at source). 

Q: What type of organizations does Vectigal work with?

We work with all types of organizations - for example individual investors, sovereign wealth funds, financial intermediaries (global custodians, asset managers, broker dealers, and online brokers) etc. Contact Us for additional information.

Q: Do you provide tax treaty benefits for dividend equivalent withholdings?

Yes.  Vectigal provides immediate tax refund, treaty benefits, on the same day of the dividend equivalent withholding tax.  Please visit our Dividend Equivalent page for more details.

Q: How does Vectigal differ from reclaim at source?  Aren't we talking about the same thing?

There are similarities between Vectigal's patented product offerings and reclaim at source - both offer tax relief at the same time as the dividend and interest payment date.  However, they differ for the following reasons:

  • Not all countries have relief at source tax provisions. 
  • Global investors may not qualify for relief at source based on strict requirements of foreign government tax authorities. 
  • Additionally, financial intermediaries typically hold securities in street name (i.e. omnibus pooled accounts), therefore paying agents do not know the actual beneficial owners of tax reclaim assets at the time of income payment and withhold taxes at the maximum statutory rates. 

Vectigal solves global investors' tax reclamation pain points by providing immediate tax refunds in all jurisdictional tax markets regardless of the reclaim at source constraints.

Q: Where can I find my country's tax treaties?

Please visit our page Tax Treaties to link to various double taxation treaties.

Q: Does your company have a patent?

Yes we do.  We received US Patent #8,234,206 in 2012 for our method and system for pooling, securitizing, and trading global dividend and interest tax reclaim assets.  There are additional patents in the pipeline.

Q: How much will Vectigal's services cost me?  Do I have to pay to talk to Vectigal?

Q: Does Vectigal offer tax advice to global investors?

No - Vectigal doesn't offer tax advisory services.  We suggest you contact your tax and legal advisors with respect to tax issues.

Q: How big are global tax withholdings?  How big is the tax reclaim market?
