    Hi Brch,

    HRMC will take this further if there is a discrepancy with the two countries interpretation of the treaty.

    You have done the right thing to write to us and this will be dealt with as soon as possilble. At the moment it is taking up to 8 weeks to process post. 

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    As per Article 17 of the tax treaty between UK/Hong Kong, any pension payment arising in Hong Kong, paid to a UK resident, is taxable only in Hong Kong. This income will therefore not need to be reported to the UK.

    Hi,

    The UK/Hong Kong treaty provides that all pensions which arise in Hong Kong are taxable only in Hong Kong, please see the link below:
    DT9207

    Therefore there is no liability to UK tax for a Hong Kong pension paid after 5 April 2011. 

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    As a UK resident you will need to declare your overseas pension, if this is taxable in Hong Kong, when you complete the foreign section of the tax return and include the tax deducted overseas and claim foreign tax credit relief:
