Hi, At here: https://www.gov.uk/check-if-you-need-tax-return I am checking if I need to do self-assessment. The question 6 ask: Do you need to pay tax on any of the following? One of the answer is 'Income from outside the UK'. For this answer, is the wording 'need to pay tax' only means to pay tax outside the UK? Secondly, if the meaning of this wording also includes the tax need to pay inside the UK, and as the money made from abroad is lesser than GBP 1300, am I need to pay tax for it?

HI, On the other hand, at here, I am checking Check if I need to send a Self Assessment tax return: https://www.gov.uk/check-if-you-need-tax-return At the question 6, it says: '6. Do you need to pay tax on any of the following?'. There are options for it, one of them is 'Income from outside the UK'. For this, I have income from outside the UK, those are saving interests, bond interest and share dividends. I do not need to paying tax for these income to the foreign countries outside the UK. However, I don't know whether I need to paying tax for these income in the UK or not. These income include GBP and foreign currencies. As calculated for conversion to GBP, the income all together is lesser than GBP 1800. If I am a tax resident in the tax year, and based on all the information I mentioned above, for the question 6, am I need to pay tax for the 'Income from outside the UK'?

Hi mancplau,

If you answer 'yes' to having income from outside the UK, you will meet the criteria to complete a Self Assessment tax return, even if it means that you do not need to pay tax on your foreign income.

Having foreign income of any amount is criteria for completing a Self Assessment tax return.  

There is guidance on tax on foriegn income at:

Tax on foreign income

Thank you.
