UK tax applies to worldwide income of UK residents and the UK income of non-residents.

In today's global job market it is becoming more common for UK residents to take up employment overseas either permanently or on secondments.  This can often result in an individual being taxed in more than one country on the same income.

  • Firstly in the country where it arises
  • Secondly in the country where the taxpayer is resident.

Double taxation relief may enable you to reclaim some of this tax.

The UK currently has Double Tax Treaties with numerous other coutries and this number is continually growing.  The Double Tax Treaty which legislates this relief can be complicated and hard to follow.

Eaves and Co provide a wealth of experience and can assist on claiming any reliefs available.
