Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
From whence did these dividends originate?
Under the Double Taxation Convention between the UK and Germany the tax deducted by Germany is allowed as a tax credit against your UK liability on the same income stream. Assuming that you claimed these deductions one must assume that you return was dealt with by an operative with very little or no knowledge of double taxation.
Exactly, assuming that you did declare the tax deducted then HMRC have, as usual, failed to take account of the tax credit in the hope that the taxpayer will not notice discrepancy..
