  • Is the non-UK resident trustee of a non-UK resident trust that is settlor-interested (with the settlor now being regarded as both UK resident and UK domiciled and thus reporting all of the trust’s income in any event) able to claim basic rate relief on UK source investment income under section 399 of the Income Tax (Trading and Other Income) Act 2005?

Is the non-UK resident trustee of a non-UK resident trust that is settlor-interested (with the settlor now being regarded as both UK resident and UK domiciled and thus reporting all of the trust’s income in any event) able to claim basic rate relief on UK source investment income under section 399 of the Income Tax (Trading and Other Income) Act 2005?

For the purposes of this Q&A, we have assumed that the settlor’s interest under the trust is an interest under a discretionary trust.

The rules relating to settlor interested trusts are anti-avoidance rules, aimed at ensuring that a settlor cannot avoid tax on assets of which they are not fully divested.

The general rule relating to income that may be treated as the settlor’s own income is contained in section 624 of Income
