CSG and CRDS by HMRC
Getting confused about french CSG and CRDS….so many contradictions
Is a UK tax payer entitled to :
- Claim foreign tax credit relief : Clearly a confusion between article 2 and 24 of the treaty. The first defines what French Tax is (and that includes CSG and CRDS). The second does not (for the purpose of french tax credit relief in the UK…does not make sense at all.
Also, the French courts ruled many times that CSG and CRDS are indeed taxes. shouldn't be then considered that the have to be credited against UK tax ? I mean 24, 2, c does/t work. they can't limit in 24 the list of french taxes once defined in art 2.
- or, at the very least, deduct those "taxes" from his taxable income. paragraph 1 says UK tax on french income should be calculated on the same income on which the French tax is calculated….meanwhile the French impot is calculated on Gross-(CSG+CRDS)
Anyone has experience of that?
After and prior to 2010 when the New UK/France Treaty entered into force?
