Within the meaning of the law, the day of obtaining and payment of income is the day, on which entitlement for unlimited action with the income pursuant to the concluded contract or law arises to an individual and on which the income is available thereto. Therefore, Citadele will withhold this tax at the moment of payment of the interest. For example, the bank will withhold the tax for the interest earned in Maxi savings account and paid on the last day of each month on the day of payment.
