Can I claim refund for the income tax paid while not being a UK resident

Postby saratchv » Tue May 18, 2021 5:32 pm

I became a UK resident on 7th Sep 2020. Before that I was a tax resident in the country INDIA.
During 1st June 2020 - 6th Sep 2020, I was working for a UK employer and they paid my salary into my India bank account but only after deducting income tax and National Insurance.
Am I eligible to claim refund for the income tax and NI considering that I need to pay income tax in India for the above said period?

You'll get relief for the tax paid in the UK. See the Double Taxation Agreement.
With a pinch of salt take what I say, but don't exceed your RDA

Thanks #pawncob for your reply. Can you please elaborate on what is meant by "You'll get relief for the tax paid". Sorry I am new to this terminology!!

If you pay tax in India, and that income is subject to tax in India, the Indian tax will be reduced by the amount paid in the UK.
