Author Taxes

As a company within the European Union (Estonia) we are responsible by the law for collecting and reporting tax on payouts for the authors.

However, if you are a resident of a country that has an income tax treaty with Estonia, you may be eligible for a reduced or even zero withholding tax rate.

The below table shows how much of the earnings are withheld IN ADDITION to the author earnings commission.

All countries which do not have a tax treaty with Estonia and are NOT listed in the table below are subject to a 20% withholding tax rate. To avoid double-taxation in your country of residence, please consult with a local accountant or tax officer.

Any tax withheld will be remitted to the Tax office on a monthly basis - and not held by MULTIMEDIA DESIGN OÜ. For more questions, contact us.
