#1 Tax-Solution for Debitum investors
Becoming a regulated P2P platform turned out to be a “tax-problem” for investors. Debitum Network now found a way to reduce the taxes to 0% for at least five years. Therefore the platform needs a TAX RESIDENCY CERTIFICATE, which is handed to investors from the local tax administration.
On their website Debitum published a guide for each country they have investors from:
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy Lithuania, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates.
For each country the local tax administration is linked OR investors find a link directly to the document, they need to fill out and upload on the P2P platform. Until then taxes will be reduced from they interest repayments.
On their website you will find first of all the blogpost of “How to allow Debitum to not withhold taxes” and second “Where can I get a tax residency certificate“. After receiving it from your local tax administration you need to upload it in your Debitum account. They will check it and turn down withholding taxes for you after they successfully checked it.

Based on those improvements the P2P industry is having very good times.

Up to you – What is relevant for you?
Also the world is talking a lot about inflation, dropping stock and crypto exchanges it seems like P2P does not give a dime on it. The industry is expanding and having a really good time. Investors are likely to profit from that trend with bigger interest rates than ever.
Of course bigger interest rates are always sign to watch out. But as the industry tries to keep the money invested – and not shifted over to stocks, cryptos or whatever – the interest rates are raising anywhere. So it is good spot to stay an investor here.
