Residence, Domicile and Remittance Basis Manual

Remittance basis: accessing the remittance basis: remittance basis charge - nomination of foreign income and gains: completing the SA return - how is this done in practice?

SA109 ‘Residence, remittance basis etc’ is the supplementary page to the SA100 main tax return for remittance basis users to complete under Self Assessment.

There is a box to claim the remittance basis on the SA109 and two boxes where the ‘amount of nominated income’ and the ‘amount of nominated capital gains’ must be entered. The amount nominated can be either income or gains or a combination of the two. The source(s) of the amount nominated is the individual’s personal choice.

When either or both of these boxes are completed the SA109 notes say that details of the nominations are to be shown in the ‘Any other information’ box.

The required information is:

  • the precise amounts of income and gains that have been nominated, (this should include the country of origin and the type and source of the income)
  • the computation of the gain (if applicable)
  • the exchange rates used (see RDRM31190
  • the calculation of the tax due in relation to the nominated income and gains.

Also, if there have been deductions for expenses or losses from either foreign income or foreign gains in arriving at the final taxable amount, full details of the amounts and nature of those expenses or losses must also be provided.

All of this information is required to validate the nomination or nominations that have been made.
