Belgium & Japan To Revise Double Tax Pact

Japan and Belgium have begun negotiating another amendment to their double tax agreement.

The first round of negotiations took place from March 29, in Tokyo.

The current agreement dates back to 1970 but has been twice amended previously, in 1990 and 2013.

Presently the agreement provides for concessionary ten percent rates of withholding tax at source for cross-border payments of dividends, royalties, and interest. The 10 percent rate on dividend income is provided only if the payee is a company that held at least 25 percent of the paying company's voting stock for six months before the payment was made. Otherwise a 15 percent rate applies.
