Thanks for coming back. Here is what I asked my solicitor to do:
That's great, so I do need to complete the three steps. Do you know if I need a solicitor to do anything with the declaration, or can we just download some template and sign and send to HRMC?
That's great. I guess now down to my last question. In Form 17 last section it says:
• Send this completed form to your tax office within 60 days of the date the declaration was made. • Send evidence of the beneficial interests you have declared.• Tell us immediately if your circumstances change.
The second point the evidence of the beneficial interests you have declared, does that mean the copy of the declaration or something else.
Later on, if say for capital gain or whatever reason I want to change the beneficial interest share, can i resend the form 17? Any limit how many times I can change?
Do i also need to send the copy of the deed as evidence too? Last question where I should send Form 17 to, as I filled the self assessment online.
Hi Tony, sorry I went to sleep last night. You've been very helpful so far. I've tried to find the template for declaration of beneficial interest online but didn't find suitable one, by any chance you can give some link?
Also how to get it witnessed? I.e. who can witness, and is it just the case the witness also needs to sign the document, sorry if this sounds stupid but i've never done this kind of thing.
I guess after these questions, I shall have no more questions. Pls kindly let me know. Many thanks.
Thanks Tony, pls let me know if you have found the template. If not, pls also let me know so that I will try to get it from my solicitor.
Regarding the witness, the answer is only partly what I am after. In fact, I'd like to know how to carry out the "witness" process. Please let me know if the following is the right sequence:
1> prepare the declaration documents and signed by both me and my wife
2> ask the witness person to give signature and his/her ID?
Is that it? I really want to know how to do it, that's what I meant.
Thank you !
