Financial institutions around the globe are struggling to improve customer retention. Providing their clients with profitable services will play a crucial role in securing long-term customer satisfaction. One of these services is the recovery of foreign withholding taxes, which is bureaucratic and not profitable - but important, as without it investors lose billions each year to foreign tax authorities.

We enable financial institutions to process applications for the reclaim of their client’s withholding taxes in an easy, yet highly efficient way – and to offer a service that both banks and clients will highly profit from.

With RAQUEST, the entire process is significantly accelerated and simplified – from the initial import of clients’ data to the final booking. RAQUEST releases customers from double taxation by choosing the fastest way possible: relief at source, quick refund, or standard refund. As such, RAQUEST is the only software that covers the entire process of optimizing withholding tax digitally.

Thanks to the STTI interface, paperless reclaim applications can be submitted to every tax authority that requires a digital procedure.
