  • Self assessment or Add a missing employer

    I am technically a UK resident and am studying at university (I have 1 year remaining). This year I am fortunate to be able to do a placement year in Germany. I am paid a salary to sustain me (a total less than £12,558). I started in September and spent a lot of time getting setup with visas, health insurance etc, but now must sort my tax. I believe I need to fill a self assessment form but have also noticed an option to 'Add a missing employer', within the 'check your income tax' tool. Should I do both or only 1? Also, at the following link does 'Apply for tax relief before you get taxed on foreign income' mean before taxed by the UK or before being taxed by Germany, because I have already had a paycheck which was taxed by the German system. Thanks ever so much
