There has been a change to the rules on Foreign Tax Credit Relief, which may enable taxpayers to reclaim the full amount of UK Capital Gains Tax paid on disposals of foreign assets on which they also paid foreign tax.
Do you fall into either of the following categories?
1) A person or Trust who had a UK CGT liability on the sale of a foreign asset after the 6th April 2004 which resulted in a UK CGT liability.
2) A company who disposed of a foreign asset in an accounting period ending after 18th March 2004 which resulted in a UK CGT liability.
If so, the tax position should be checked, as HMRC have amended their view to allow the whole of the foreign tax to be allowed as Foreign Tax Credit Relief, up to the amount of the UK tax on the gain.
