Withholding tax
A Tax levied by a country of source on income paid, usually on dividends remitted to the home country of the firm operating in a foreign country.
    
Withholding Tax is an amount withheld by the party making payment to another (payee) and paid to the taxation authorities. The amount the payer deducts may vary, depending on the nature of the product or service being paid for. The payee is assessed on the gross amount, and the Tax to be withheld (the withholding Tax) is computed in that assessment. The purpose of withholding Tax is to facilitate or accelerate collection, by collecting Tax from payers rather than a much greater number of payees, and by collecting Tax from payers within the jurisdiction rather than payees who may be outside the jurisdiction. It may also be used to counteract Tax evasion and Tax avoidance.
