Withholding tax from Brazil - any relief?

Any relief for tax retained in Brazil ?

Didn't find your answer?

Client company performed some work in South America, employing UK subcontractors and a Brazil based company as the client

Client invoiced but when payment was received it was short - Brazil customer explanation is that they need to retain 15% of invoice value as a tax

Looking at double taxation treaties there doesnt seem to be any agreement between UK and Brazil for this so I guess the tax is simply a cost of the UK company like any other?

There doesn’t need to be a treaty in place for double tax relief to apply.

It looks as if it is a creditable tax.
