10.2  
In the event that any VAT is properly chargeable on any amount paid by Corp hereunder:

To the extent that any such withholding taxes could be reduced or eliminated by the provision of appropriate withholding certificates, TXUEL and the TXUEL Officeholders shall cooperate in obtaining and providing such certificates.
 
11.3

11.4  
TXUEL and the TXUEL Officeholders shall use reasonable efforts at the direction and expense of Corp to procure the cooperation of any CVA Creditor who may be in a position to obtain and provide such certificates as are specified in Clause 11.2 or claim for and remit such refunds as are specified in Clause 11.3.
 
11.5  
Corp and the Holding Companies agree that no amounts payable by Corp under Sections 2 or 11 of this Agreement have been paid in consideration of services performed in the United States of America.
