BNY Mellon Turns to Xceptor for New Tax Processing Platform

The solution will provide digital process automation for tax documentation management and pre-population, identification of tax relief opportunities, and submission and tracking of withholding tax reclaims.  

There’s exceptional news for Xceptor as US bank BNY Mellon has entered into a multi-year licensing agreement to adopt its tax platform. 

With $43 trillion (£35 trillion) in assets under custody as of 30 June 2022, BNY Mellon is kind of a big deal. The adoption involves a phased implementation of Xceptor’s tax platform.

The solution will provide digital process automation for tax documentation management and pre-population, identification of tax relief opportunities, and submission and tracking of withholding tax reclaims.

Liam Stanbridge, Head of Tax Product at BNY Mellon, states: “We look forward to working with Xceptor on implementing this program together and advancing digital integration across market participants to help make withholding tax relief more efficient for institutional investors.”

The announcement is the “latest milestone” in BNY Mellon’s ongoing digital transformation to streamline key areas of its custody tax operation.
