  • Double tax convention - reclaiming tax

    Having drawn down a personal pension I was taxed in the UK, despite being fiscally resident in France. I submitted the relevant form to reclaim this tax in March 2022. I have heard nothing. I have telephoned from France at least 10 times, and have been cut off after 48 minutes each time. I have submitted chase up forms - nothing. I have submitted a complaint form early February which should have been completed by March 10th - still has not bee started. I now have to submit my French tax return, which will require payment of tax on the pension, which I do not have because HMRC have not dealt with my request in over 1 year. I have no idea what to do as no forms are dealt with, no phones are answered - what on earth can I do??
