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.


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.




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.“
