Finland: Updated One-Time Certificates for relief at source process published – Standard DTT rate


Clearstream Banking1 informs clients that effective


updated versions of the three One-Time Certificates for publicly listed Finnish equities have been published under Tax forms to use – Finland.

In section 1.A, related to the standard Double Taxation Treaty (DTT) rate, the reference to a specific tax rate has been removed to avoid the need for renewal of the One-Time Certificates should the standard DTT rate change.

All other sections of the One-Time Certificates remain unchanged.

Impact on clients

At present, the previous versions of the One-Time Certificates remain valid for all clients.

However, clients who have beneficial owners eligible for the standard DTT rate, as per section 1.A, may already renew their One-Time Certificates to avoid the need for renewal should the standard DTT rate change in the future.
