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.
Two questions, are you an UK resident ans does this letter require details of income or holdings or both?
You are liable for UK taxation on your world wide income. If you declared any Swedish income from shareholdings on your self assessment return then you should reply to HMRC to this effect. If you did not then you should tell that Department about your overseas income and any tax deducted. Under the Double Taxation Convention between the UK and Sweden any tax deducted by the Swedish authorities is allowable as a tax credit against any UK liablilty on the same income stream. The Convention does not, however, protect you from differences in rates of taxation.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
What is your nationality and where are you domiciled?
Well it takes at least 16 years to obtian an UK domicile so it can be taken that you are not domiciled here. Therefore under the current rules, as your foreign income is beöow 2K and not remitted to the UK, there is no requirement to disclose it on your self assessment tax return if you make any. You should advise HMRC of this fact ans politely tell them to mind their own business.
Tnank you for your support.
