Why did you choose Dendax for the tax refund?
If you work abroad, you pay taxes as others. Most more developed countries have different tax system and there is a possibility to get back overpaid tax. Knowing that I sought additional information on the Internet. After that I was looking for a company that would apply for refunds instead of me. I choose a large company that provides tax refunds from a large number of countries because it usually means professionalism. It seems that I choose well because the cooperation with Dendax was professional and quick.
