I wonder if you can help me regarding the position of having paid pension contributions into a foreign social insurance programme while resident overseas with a view to gaining a foreign state pension. Ultimately there is a possibility that there will have been insufficient pension contributions made into this programme count-wise at my pensionable age so that state will refund my contributions to me along with those made by my employer, as a gratuity. Please can you advise how these two refunds should each be regarded for UK tax purposes when the time arises. Thank you for your assistance with this.
Thank you in advance for any assistance that you can provide regarding my post of 2 days ago. I'm sorry that I didn't put that in earlier.
In the 2021-2022 tax year I arrived in the UK to live in my ONLY home effective 23rd September having previously lived in Grenada until 19th June (in transit thereafter mainly in Portugal). I have UK State Pension and declared the entire income received in the tax year for UK tax however I'm not sure if I am actually entitled to use split year treatment for it in the same way I have done for other income. I was resident for tax purposes in Grenada from 4th March 2020 to 19th June 2021 but did not complete forms to show that was the case as it is not necessary to file tax returns there if one has ZERO Grenada arising income. I only spent one day (22nd September) in the UK before I moved into my own home in the 2021-2022 tax year.
