It depends on how the agreement is worded. If it's a loan, then the payments would be treated as interest instead of dividends, and these are taxed at different rates.It's no stock. You cannot sell anything here.
Basically, you give me a loan and will get xx% of the profit share back. And after a set amount of time, you can reclaim your money.
This is the standard contract we're currently preparing.
It's not a matter of seeking a special deal, just trying to make sure that the terms of the deal are clear, and determine how the payments would be taxed in the investor's country.
There is a double-tax agreement between the USA and Germany, as well as an agreement that dividends paid by German corporations are treated as 'qualified dividends' (subject to the 15% tax rate) in the USA.Maybe US government has information about double tax agreements for investments into foreign countries somewhere?
