The Withholding Tax FinTech
Withholding tax expertise meets outstanding IT know-how.
We combined both in RAQUEST.
15 years of experience in foreign withholding tax
Our answer to inefficient withholding tax processes
We are passionate about withholding tax and our vision: Simple, automated tax processing for the financial industry, from which even investors will benefit to the fullest. With our extensive withholding tax expertise, we are both a guide in a volatile market and a sparring partner for our clients.
ENTHUSIASM FROM THE VERY BEGINNING
Withholding tax processing rethought
In 2010 the first prototype of RAQUEST was developed, enabling banks to reclaim withholding taxes digitally for the first time. A small team works day and night on the product and puts heart, soul and countless working hours into its development.
DEDICATION AND MOTIVATION
Into the future with innovation
The next few years will reveal how much the industry has been waiting for such solution. After the initial launch of RAQUEST, a large, international transaction bank became enthusiastic about the solution - and many others followed. Today, RAQUEST is the market-leading B2B software for withholding tax processing. From a handful of employees the company has grown into a large team with people from more than 10 nations. The founding team is still involved in the company and keeps the initial spirit alive with a lot of passion for innovation.
„With RAQUEST, we have developed a withholding tax processing solution that equally benefits financial institutions and the after-tax performance of their investors.“
Alexander Lerch, Co-Founder & CEO RAQUEST
The RAQUEST software launches at Landesbank Baden-Württemberg as a pilot customer after two years of development.
DZ PRIVATBANK Luxembourg is the first foreign bank choosing RAQUEST to reclaim withholding tax.
In addition to the standard refund claim, the range of functions and features is extended by the module for automated relief at source.
