There are several very common situations which we can assist with:

The UK has entered into a number of double tax treaties with other countries which aim to ensure that those who would otherwise be liable to tax on income and gains both in the UK and another contracting state will not be taxed twice on the same income or gains.
To claim relief under a double tax treaty, a UK resident individual must provide evidence of the fact that he is tax resident in the UK. For some countries a taxpayer will need to complete a specific claim form issued by that country’s tax authority and which HMRC must endorse with a certificate. For other countries it will be sufficient to provide a letter – called a “certificate of residence” – which will confirm the taxpayer was tax resident in the UK in a particular period. The new form, provides an efficient and streamlined way for a UK tax resident individual to prove to a foreign tax authority that he is tax resident in the UK.
