Certificate of residence - new online form available from HMRC

December 2011

Where an individual is resident in the UK and has overseas income and/or gains, it may be possible to claim tax relief or exemption to avoid paying tax twice.  For some countries it is necessary to provide their tax authorities with a 'certificate of residence' confirming UK residence status.

It is now possible to apply online to HMRC for a certificate of residence (see link in the ‘Resources’ section below).  It is to be hoped that this will make the process easier and quicker.
