Double Taxation Agreements: Isle of Man: Income from a UK source paid to a resident of the Isle of Man - Scope of the UK/Isle of Man Double Taxation Arrangement
The 1955 arrangement has very restricted scope, as it contains no articles dealing with:
- pensions (but see below wef 6 April 2009)
- other income
No relief can therefore be available under the arrangement in respect of these categories of income.
But relief may be available to a Manx ‘enterprise’ under the ‘Industrial or commercial profits’ paragraph INTM354525 (This relief is unaffected by the amended arrangement)
Effects of the amended arrangement-wef 6 April 2009
The amended arrangement now allows exemption from UK tax on:
- pensions (including state pension)
- trivial commutation lump sums
However, no relief is available in respect of the above if the individual has “dual resident” status.
If in any doubt or difficulty regarding “dual residence” please submit case to PT International Advisory (DT), Room 240 St John’s House, Merton Road, Liverpool L75 1BB
