New: International & Special Tax

For many years tax-related financial data is a focus of WMACCESS. Numerous in Germany relevant tax data in different WM products, such as for example in GAT, IFK or IFP can already be queried in a pay-per-view manner.
With its new product WM now moves a step further and provides with Check-the-Box (USA), Stamp-Duty UK and limited tax liability new information in a transnational context as well as information on the special regulations on the AStG reporting.
On April 14th, 2015 we have integrated this new WM product named International and Special Tax (IST) into WMACCESS.

The following is an excerpt from the associated WM Customer Information:

Check-the-Box Taxation: Check-the Box is a taxation option in the US. This means that certain companies have, regardless of their actual legal form, the option to be taxed as a partnership or a corporation in the US.

Stamp Duty UK Taxation: Within the UK, British shares, subscription rights, warrants with Great Britain as country of origin and custody as well as certain foreign shares with Great Britain as country of custody (share register), are subject to the UK Stamp Duty taxation.

German Foreign Transaction Tax Act (AStG): The AStG has been adjusted by the German legislator. Capital investment companies are also affected by the changes. The Foreign Transaction Tax Act is supposed to ensure that taxation is made in Germany even though income or assets are transferred abroad. This means that capital investment companies may be subject to an inclusion amount pursuant to Section 10(1)1 of the Foreign Transaction Tax Act. WM provides a classification, if the company is subject to the regulation as well as the corresponding income data.

Limited Income Tax Liability: Income received from certain financial instruments is subject to tax, if the natural person subject to limited tax liability is neither resident nor domiciled in Germany. In Germany, income is subject to the investment income tax. WM identifies the affected financial instruments.

The following nine data fields are now available in the detail displays of query profile Securities master data and Income data:

New fields in the query profile Securities master data (G)

  • GD968A Foreign Transaction Tax Act vehicle (AStG-Vehikel) pursuant to
    section 19(4) of the Investment Tax Act
  • GD968B Check-the-Box-Procedure
  • GD968C Limited taxable income pursuant to section 49 of the Income Tax Act
  • GD968D Stamp-Duty UK

New fields in the query profile Income data (E)

  • ED470A Inclusion amount (Hinzurechnungsbetrag) pursuant to section 10(1)1 of the Foreign Transaction Tax Act
  • ED470B Taxable inflow of the inclusion amount (Hinzurechnungsbetrag) pursuant to section 10(2)1 of the Foreign Transaction Tax Act
  • ED470C Offsettable foreign tax pursuant to section 10(1)1 of the Foreign Transaction Tax Act
  • ED470D Distributions pursuant to section 3 no. 41a of the income tax act
  • EV471 Inflow date of the inclusion amount pursuant to section 10(1)1 of the Foreign Transaction Tax Act against which the distributions in the sense of section 3 no. 41a of the income tax are offset

Small, new features in wmView, wmProfile and wmGuide

Three new features are now available in WMACCESS via Internet.

wmGuide: Full text search in field descriptions

Up to now wmGuide offered a search function for the field identification (e.g. "GD100") as well as for field name (e.g. "Status reason").
Now a case-insensitive full text search is added, which searches the complete field descriptions.

The following wildcard characters are supported:

* = Placeholder for any number of characters
? = Placeholder for exactly one character

Full text search with wildcard characters

wmView: Hide cancelled rows in linkage fields

Sometimes it is pretty annoying to identify the valid entries in certain linkage fields such as ID917 (Estimated undisclosed accumulated deemed distribution income) due to a large number of cancelled entries mixed with a small number of valid entries.

Now WMACCESS will offer a function in the column header to hide cancelled rows, if a mixed situation of valid and cancelled entries is present.

wmView: Sorting linkage fields

So far most of the linkage fields in WMACCESS such as GV451 (Historical classification funds) are completely supplied by WM Datenservice and therefore those fields appear in a proper business oriented order in wmView and wmProfile. Some of the younger linkage fields, however the supplied sequence (Seq. String No) should no longer necessarily correspond to a business oriented logical order, usually a valid from data field. For such fields, the display was sub-optimal in WMACCESS under certain circumstances. Therefore, we have now entered a different sort order for many linkage fields, so that the entries now usually are sorted based on the respective date field.
