The withholding tax fintech

Powerful software and comprehensive withholding tax expertise from a one-stop shop

RAQUEST GmbH is a vibrant fintech that has developed the leading software for optimizing withholding tax procedures. 13 years ago, we created RAQUEST, an intelligent and reliable tool for relief at source and recaim of foreign withholding taxes.

Our mission

Investors lose billions of euros every year in overpaid withholding tax. At RAQUEST, we believe that no one should overpay tax on foreign dividends and that refunding these withholding taxes should be as simple as possible. That’s why we have made it our mission to help financial institutions get their clients’ money back in the simplest and most efficient way possible.

Future of banking is digital​

We strongly believe that the future of banking is digital. Thus, we aim to shape the digital transformation of banks and contribute to a future that merges smart technology and the financial sector. In doing so, we focus on an area that has received little attention so far: complex, manual and cost-intensive processes in banks’ back offices, such as the reclaiming of foreign withholding tax.
