  • Which box do I tick for foreign self-employment income that has NOT been taxed abroad?

    Hi there, I carry out freelance writing work for a company based abroad, but I physically carry out the work in the UK and the income is paid directly by the company into my UK bank account. I have NOT paid foreign tax on it. I was told by a chat agent that I was required to declare this as foreign income in my self-assessment form, but there is no option to tick for self-employment income that has NOT been taxed abroad. None of the help dropdowns for any of the checkboxes refer to this most basic of scenarios (even the 'Any other overseas income and gains' option doesn't suggest that this is where to put it). Which of the options does this income fall under? Many thanks!
