I have been told from one of the Pension suppliers (Not government service jobs) that as the income is from the UK then tax is payable. As we have no UK income and that the income will be approx 15,000 pounds per year I am told the tax will be at the basic level.
Evidently it is irrelevant I am a non UK resident now - the pension income is taxable due to its UK mainland source.
Could you re check your answer as i'm getting more and more confused. I'm not doubting you but it contradicts what i have been told from various sources before.
Thanks for that. It would appear I may have a battle on my hands with Lloyds/HSBC and Legal and General!
Even I wasn't aware of the double Tax treaty with us Saudi expats and the UK so many thanks for supplying that.
Thanks for an excellent reply; I just hope it's going to save me some Tax
Dear ***** Tax
I'm not sure if you remember this query but you did a great job.
I followed up with the Tax Authorities on my case and they sent a very good response.
Their response is slightly different to the one you gave me, with more details on the agreement with UK/Saudi Arabia. If you give me an e mail address I can send it to you as it may help other ex pats.
Let me know if this interests you
