Question: I am the Company’s Client and am not a citizen of Russian Federation. At the same time, I invest into shares of Russian companies and receive dividends. I am resident of the country with whom Russian Federation has signed the agreement of avoidance of double taxation. What is needed from me in order to pay 13% instead of 30% in tax?

Answer: For Clients, who receive income from transactions or instruments falling under taxation in Russian Federation – tax certificate or any other document confirming tax residence for the current tax period (calendar year). It is necessary to provide this document on annual basis.
