Shareholders Structure

The dividend distributed for several years by the Company has been in excess of the minimum set by relevant corporate legislation (profit for appropriation after the deduction of corporate tax and statutory reserves).

Taxation on dividends distributed by Greek companies has changed considerably in recent years. Up to fiscal 2007, investors were not required to record their dividends in their tax statements because dividends were taxed at company level applying the corporate tax rate.

Law 3697/2008 imposed a 10% withholding tax on dividends for fiscal 2008 and 2009, with investors receiving the net dividend. Investors were still not required to state their dividends in their tax forms.

Starting from fiscal 2010, Law 3842/2010 imposed an aggregate 40% tax on distributed profits (inclusive of the going corporate tax rate), with the tax being withheld at corporate level. Dividends are required to be recorded by investors in their tax statements and be taxed at standard personal taxation rates. High-income investors are not liable to additional tax, but those investors in lower tax brackets are entitled to tax returns.

International investors eligible for dividend wishing to make use of bilateral Conventions for the Avoidance of Double Taxation (CADT) to claim a lower tax rate and tax refund, should submit to the Greek Fiscal Authorities the relevant “Annual Application for Income Tax Refund”, duly filled and signed.

The application includes the “Tax Residence Certificate” which must be filled, signed and stamped by the tax authorities of residence of international investors. [It should be noted that the tax authorities of the USA and Turkey issue their own tax residence certificate, hence there is no need to sign and stamped the included certificate]. All forms, along with instructions in Greek and English, are available at www.gsis.gr/ddos under “Forms for Double Taxation Conventions”.
