Foreign Income Nudge letter

Postby Chloe19 » Sun Jul 30, 2023 5:46 am

Hello all. I have been sent a nudge letter from HMRC concerning foreign income. I complete a self assessment return every year but have failed to tick foreign income as I was unaware I needed to. Upon reviewing, the only foreign income i think I may have was trading American stocks and shares through a well known online broker for the past 4 years. The gains have always been well below my capital gains allowance of £12300 which I understand would be the correct tax category for any profit made from trading. Dividends have been minimal. The nudge letter asks me to tick a box. I'm unsure whether i need to tick 1. Worldwide Disclosure Facility or tick 2. I have not declared my overseas income and or gains as they are covered by personal allowance or reliefs. Any advice would be much appreciated.
