Claiming tax back from Germany

Having discussed with the UK tax authorities it seems that my German income is only taxable in the UK (I am UK resident). It is taxed at source in Germany and therefore I need to claim the tax back.

Does anyone know where I find the forms to claim back (in German)?

Default position is it's taxed in country of residence only, so in your case: UK That is unless you satisfy sub para 3 which can get messy, in which case it would be taxable only in Germany. Would need a lot mo...

[Another] Overseas tax question

In 2018/19 I had two sources of overseas income - both from Germany: 1. A regular early retirement / pension payment. 2. Irregular / consulting income.

Worldwide income in the middle east

I may have an opportunity to work in the middle east in a way that I would establish residence and therefore any local earnings would be tax free.

Question: Does that apply to worldwide income? I have other income taxed at source from another country, can I claim the tax back?

Re: British resident in uk receive German Pension

Another phone call to Germany revealed that I should wait for the German tax bill.
Does that mean that they are not deducting tax at source? Or do you mean you are also submitting a German tax return?

Re: British resident in uk receive German Pension

Reading this: https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/double-taxation-relief/dt7909 The key for me seems to be this: However, under Article 17(3) pensions paid to a United Kingdom resident will be taxable only in Germany where that pension is attributable in whole or in part to contributions which,...

Re: British resident in uk receive German Pension

Sorry don't have an answer but wanted to follow as I have the same situation. Is the pension from Germany a state pension, a works pension or both. My understanding was that, assuming you are UK resident, then the German pension would be declared as part of your worldwide income. Then you would clai...

Re: Which exchange rate to apply?

HMRC publsh their own monthly averages I believe. But you can use a market rate if it's reasonable.
Yes, thanks, i know that.

My question was whether to apply the average for the month or the actual rate on the day the cash was received?
