Hi. Do you have any idea what a Siegen stamp is? Is it possible for you to upload the document and give me a brief translation. Is it possible that the Greek tax office want HMRC to confirm that you are a tax resident of the UK?

As I suspected, the Greek tax people want a certificate of UK tax residence. Rather than send the letter you have to HMRC which they might lose, complete and submit the online application/email here: https://online.hmrc.gov.uk/shortforms/form/PT_CertOfRes When you receive the letter from HMRC, you can attach it to your letter from the Greek tax office and send it all to them. Make sure you keep copies of any documents you post. I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.

Hello Tony,Thanks for your reply. The Greek tax office(!) wants also their document to be filled in and stamped with Schengen stamp. This is what they will approve! As it is specified in the document, the HRMC, needs to write down the money i earned for 2015 and what was the taxes i paid here.thanksbest regards

HMRC probably won't do that even if you send the letter to them and ask you to do it. The UK isn't part of the Schengen agreement. They have a way of doing things and normally won't move from that. If you really want to press for the stamp and confirmation of income and tax paid, call HMRC on the number here and ask for a call back from an international tax specialist to find out what they will do. They may issue a P800 tax calculation for 2014/15 and for 2015/16 in the Summer of 2016 after the UK tax year has ended on 5 April 2016. That will show your income and tax paid.
