Withholding tax is applied by some countries were we hold an event there.
Where the event is held in a country where there is a double-tax treaty with the UK, local delegates pay the full amount invoiced. We will provide, with your invoice, a copy of a statement from HM Revenue and Customs that The Financial Crime Forum is a registered UK company entitled to collect full payment under the treaty.
Delegates from outside the country where the event is held, pay the full amount invoiced.
If there is no double tax treaty relief, then local delegates pay the full amount of the invoice to us and the tax uplift to your government, i.e. gross up the fee to take account of the tax payable.
So the nett effect is that you pay to us the full amount of the invoice. The difference is in the supporting paperwork and/or payments you make to your own government.
