i have a tax question on corporate taxes on dividends to be paid in UK for non UK residents
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 1 year ago.

Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

Could you please expand on your question for me. You say you are non resident in the UK, so what dividends are you receiving and how much per tax year [6 April to following 5 April]. What is your overall UK income? Are you a citizen of an EEA country?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am a tax resident in Portugal. my company is in the UK. I live in Portugal.
Citizenship : French

hello?
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 1 year ago.

Dividends are issued tax free, the first 2K of these are tax free anyway.

As a French citizen you have a Personal Allowance (PA), currently 12.5K, to offset any taxable elements of dividends paid to you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
any dividends amount will therefore be tax free as a non resident in UK living abroad?
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 1 year ago.

Providing they do not exceed the PA.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
if they exceed ? what happens then?
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 1 year ago.

They would be taxed at 7.5%.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
whatever the amount?
Expert:  bigduckontax replied 1 year ago.

Assuming you do not go into higher tax brackets ie over 50K.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
