Trust income and gains: enquiry into income from a trust - how to check settlor's deemed income
If you have doubts about the validity of the form R185 (Settlor) or the amounts shown, you can ask the relevant Trusts & Estates Office (TSEM1415) if they can verify the amount of income arising to the trustees that is treated as the settlor’s. Form R185 (Settlor) shows the trustees’ name and the tax reference of the trust.
‘I have an open enquiry into my taxpayer’s [return/repayment claim] for the income tax year [year]. My taxpayer [name] states s/he is taxable on income arising to your trust on which tax was paid in the following amounts:
amount of income £
tax paid by trustees
Can you please confirm this from your trust return for [year]?’
