Finland: FTA publishes Double Taxation Treaty guidance


Clearstream Banking1  would like to inform customers, that the Finnish Tax Administration (FTA) has published guidance on the interpretation of Double Taxation Treaty articles.

Customers may view the English translation of the FTA's guidance directly on the FTA’s website.

Impact on customers

Customers are reminded that they are responsible for determining the tax rate applicable to the underlying beneficial owner of the income.

Customers are therefore strongly recommended to review the above guidance prior to applying for a reduced tax rate for underlying beneficial owners.
