Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
As a non resident all you need to do is invoice with no tax. In the unlikely event of the UK agency deducting tax, then under the Double Taxation Treaty between the UK and Nigeria any tax deducted is allowed as a tax credit against any Niger***** *****ability on the same income stream.
There is no VAT due, well there is, but the customer is in Nigeria it is a zero rated supply and the VAT rate charged is at 0%!
You should invoice the UK agency with no mention of any tax.
Correct, I am off to bed now and will respond to any follow queries you may have in the morning.
Where are you actually living?
Naturally, however, I would suggest that you invoice from Nigeria and pay tax there on your activities.
You would only need to register the company for UK VAT if in any 12 month period the turnover exceeded £85K.
