Customer Question

Hi TaxVince,
I am currently offshore in Angola and have just completed my tax return for the year 14/15. My company has paid my Angolan tax for me and I am in receipt of a letter say how much they have paid on my behalf. With this in mind am I able to offset this amount from my UK tax bill?

Thank you for your question.

I am another tax expert on this site and I am happy to help you with your question.

You can claim foreign tax credit relief against tax suffered on your earnings in Angola under the double taxation agreement between the two countries by completing supplementary pages SA106-Foreign accompanying your main tax return.

More information on this can be found here (also look at Foreign notes)

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.
