    • Hi Avula,

      I didn’t fully understand your question, but withholding tax is used for example when service company is delivery something to other company in different company.

      In those cases, part of the taxes are paid in the country where the service on site is delivered. Usually the tax is withhold from the Customer and remaining is paid to the supplier.

      Generally, this is a tax deducted from the Customer/Source.
