Singapore, Latvia Agree To Amend Double Tax Pact

by Mary Swire, Tax-News.com, Hong Kong

25 April 2017


Singapore and Latvia have signed a Protocol to amend their double tax agreement.

The amendment would lower withholding tax on royalties income from 7.5 percent to 5 percent and amend the list of eligible intangible assets.

Withholding tax on dividends will generally be capped at 10 percent. A zero rate will apply if the recipient is the beneficial owner of the dividend income and is a company, other than a partnership.

The withholding tax on interest for private sector entities will generally be capped at 10 percent.

The protocol also updates provisions concerning the automatic exchange of tax information.
