Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
For how long were you in Japan working? You appear to be completing the wrong forms; companies are liable to Corporation Tax (CT), not Income Tax (IT).
Any tax with held in Japan from your limited company is, under the Double Taxation Treaty between the UK and Japan, allowed as a tax credit against UK CT liability.
Can you shed a bit more light on your question, who issued you with these forms?
Ah, Japanese forms, but if the tax is with held you can use that as a tax credit against UK liability. It is the same rate as UK CT anyway.
They look pretty straightforward to me, just cumbersome.
That I can understand, they probably know little more than you or I unless thay are a Japanese firm.
Just complete as many boxes as you can. After all it is not a disaster if 20% is with held as this is allowable as a tax credit anyway.
which boxes on which forms are giving you problems?
Very probably, corporate life is invariably more complex.
Yes, but you did this work as a limited company so the list of members will be needed.
I am sorry you have just destroyed my last answer. I suggest No is the correct response to Box 3.
That was when I thought that you had acted in a personal capacity, not through a company.
