  • Dividend income - foreign but paid and taxed through payroll?

    Hello, My employer has an equity programme where employees are granted shares. This year I received a dividend from the share company, which I believe is registered in the Cayman Islands. The "bonus"/dividend was paid through my normal payroll process in the UK. On the notice from my employer it reads "Payments on award shares are employment bonuses and will be paid net of tax in the next payroll" Is this foreign income, since it was paid by my normal UK employer through normal UK payroll? Do I need to report this bonus/dividend in foreign income? I don't know how much tax I paid specifically for that bonus since it was just included in my payroll payslip amount. It's already in my P60 as total pay received Thank you!
