If the Client shall at any time be compelled by any applicable law to withhold or deduct any tax on behalf of the Company from any amount payable to the Company hereunder, the amount payable to the Company shall be increased to such extent that the net amount received by the Company after such withholding or deduction shall equal the amount that would have been received by the Company hereunder if no such withholding or deduction had been required. The Client shall promptly furnish to the Company written receipts from the appropriate tax authority certifying that the payment of all applicable withholding taxes have been made.
