Our Story

In 1992, GlobeTax was founded to help investors and financial institutions benefit from withholding tax recovery processes. 

For investors and financial institutions seeking to recover taxes through relief at source, quick refund, and standard reclaim processes, GlobeTax offers MIDAS®. In this capacity, GlobeTax procures documentation, monitors income, manages relief at source elections and files reclaim applications, ensuring that all possible entitlements are returned.

GlobeTax also processes claims for depositary banks, DTC Participants, issuers, and transfer agents through the firm’s ESP product. In this capacity, GlobeTax collects, validates, and transmits beneficial owner data and documentation along the custody chain to support withholding tax recovery.
