reclaimer® is a user-friendly web-application. It manages and optimises the entire process for withholding tax relief at source and reclaim: from data import and validation, to data enrichment, reclaim/relief calculation, document production, and cash allocation.
Cutting-edge technology, applied
The reclaimer® is a web application based on a Java/Kotlin backend and an Angular frontend. The frontend uses latest technologies provided by Angular like Typescript, RxJS (reactive programming), and Angular Material. The backend provides a REST API implemented with Dropwizard and an API library generated with Swagger. Furthermore, we are using Hibernate for the persistence layer, liquibase for database migrations, CircleCI for continuous integration, and much more.

Your advantages of using reclaimer®
Always keep the overview
We know from experience how difficult it is to keep up-to-date with all your reclaims. What is the status of a reclaim? What needs to be done next? When did I send the reclaim to the local tax authority? Which reclaims are ready to be submitted? This is no longer an issue with reclaimer®’s dashboards and other reporting functionalities.
Check out some of the main features
Our main dashboard gives you an immediate overview: what your next tasks are, what you have pending, and what you have already done.
For each reclaim market you can easily see what the reclaim potential is, how many reclaims are pending, and how much has been reclaimed already.
With one click you get additional information for each market in an easy to read and interpret way.
The answers to additional form questions can be added through our user-friendly interface.
Over 60 reclaim forms embedded
reclaimer® picks the right form and fills it out in accordance with industry-standards.
The applicable reclaim process depends on specific circumstances (client domicile, client type, market, power-of-attorney, custodian etc.). Our visualizer tool outlines the details of each process and shows where a reclaim is in this process.
Broad market coverage
reclaimer® covers 17 markets and over 600 market-domicile combinations. Frequent updates make sure the business rules are up-to-date.
reclaimer® automatically produces the relevant Cover letters using the bank’s CI that are need where forms have to be submitted by post.

«Data protection considerations were extremely important to us from the outset of the evaluation process and were a key factor in our decision to use the inhouse solution reclaimer for the withholding tax reclaim process, which is very much appreciated by our customers.
