Dear HMRC, I was hoping you may be able to advise, I may recieve a divident from an Irish based company in the future. I am a UK tax resident, non-domiciled (Irish Domiciled, moved to UK in 2016). I have two questions regarding the tax implications of this, 1. If I receive a dividend in Ireland and do not bring it into the UK (i.e. payed into an Irish bank account and not brought into the UK) would I be liable to UK tax on that dividend held in an Irish account? 2. If I did decide to bring that dividend income into the UK - how would that be treated? Will it be charged at the UK dividend rate or is ther a flat fee? Kind Regards,

If you are claiming the remittance basis then you would only pay tax on this when the income was brought into the UK:

Residence, domicile and the remittance basis: RDR1    .

If you are declaring this to the UK then it would be charged at the normal dividend tax rate.  See link:

Tax on dividends    .

Thank you.

Thank you very much for that, I have a query related to the documentation. 1) Is the years resident counted by the tax year to April or by the calender year from when I moved to the UK? And 2) If I moved to the UK, and started paying tax, in September 2016, how many years am I tax resident in the UK currently 5 or 6? (As in does the sept 16 to April 17 count as year 0 or year 1). Essentially in am wondering when I will become 7 year's tax resident April 22, September 22 or April or September 2023. (I have never lived in the uk prior to sept 2016 and have been a full time resident since then) Thanks, Marcus

For UK purposes it is calculated based on the tax year, April to April.

Your first year to check for UK residency would be 16/17, as this was the year of arrival.

This would be year 1 if you are classed as tax resident for that year.

Thank you.

Thank you for that so am o right in assuming that as of April 2022 I will be in my seventh year, bit I won't have been resident for 7 of the last 9 until the end of that tax year i.e. April 2023?

Hi marcusthethird

If you were resident from the year 16/17 then your 7 th year would be 22/23.
