I am a basic rate tax payer. In 2022-23 I received a dividend of over £2000 from French shares and less than £200 from Spanish shares (Santander). Both have had withholding tax removed. My understanding is that:
There is a double taxation agreement with both countries.
I should fill in the foreign dividend section giving the details of the 2 shares separately
I can only claim FTCR at the rate I would pay in the UK - currently 8.75%.
The pull down section on the online form for the rate I am claiming appears not to have been updated as there is no value of 8.75%. I tried putting in 8% but it gave an error message.It will only accept 7.5%. What do I do? I have tried the HMRC digital help but the computer just refers me to the double taxation agreement. A reply from someone from HMRC please
