UK/Estonia tax treaty: royalties

printer Mail

HMRC has confirmed that, with effect from 16 October 2015, no withholding tax on royalties is permitted under the UK/Estonia treaty, by virtue of the ‘most favoured nation’ provision. The provision was triggered by Estonia entering into a double taxation agreement with Switzerland, which provides for taxation of royalties in the resident state only. The UK is therefore entitled to the same treatment.
