I am completing Dividends from foreign companies section of tax return. I have over £2,000 threshold for dividend income and am basic rate tax payer. I am entering £233 of dividend income from France which has already had £65 tax deducted. I have answered “Yes” to the box Do you wish to claim foreign tax credit. I am not sure what rate to enter for “rate of tax credit relief allowed”? When I enter the treaty rate of 15%, I get a red error message “Please check and amend entry below”. What rate should I enter in this box?

For France this would be a rate of 15% as per the tax treaty see link:

France: tax treaties    .

Thank you.
