Greece: Proposed decrease of dividend withholding tax rate


A draft amendment to the tax law has been submitted to the Greek Parliament and includes a proposal to decrease the withholding tax on dividend distributions from Greek equities from 15% to 10%.

It is expected that the law, if voted, will be applicable for income earned from 1 January 2019 and applied for dividends distributed as from 2020.

We continue to monitor the Greek market for new developments and will provide more information as it becomes available.
