In her 2021/22 tax return, my wife reported on page TR3 untaxed foreign interest of £4, foreign dividends of £208 and tax taken off foreign dividends of £75. All these were under £2000 so she assumed that it could be reported on page TR3. She now received a letter from HMRC stating "We cannot accept this tax return because you did not send us the Foreign supplementary page". While she is happy to send in the completed Foreign pages as requested, we are wondering why there is an option to report Foreign dividend and interest income on Page TR3 (which specifically states for box 6 "Do not include this amount in the Foreign pages"? Please explain

Hi gerhardp,

Untaxed foreign interest below £2000.00 can be declared in box TR3.3

Foreign dividends under £2000.00 can be declared in box TR3.6, with foreign tax deducted in box TR3.7.

Where these are the only sources of foreign income and within the mentioned limits, there is no need to complete SA106.

Please contact our self assessment helpline on 0300 200 3310 to have the tax return captured.  

The guidance on completing SA100 can be found at:

Thank you.
