Pension contribution refund

Postby Brightonian » Mon Mar 11, 2019 12:22 pm

I have a client who is now UK resident again, having spent 4 years working in Italy. While he was there, he contributed to an employer's pension scheme. As he has now left their employment, he has been given his contributions back, less 27% Italian tax. I am assuming that he has no UK tax liability on these, as they relate to a period when he was not resident. Am I missing anything?
