I am working with a client who is a UK resident and has rental income from a property she jointly owns in India. I believe she needs to declare the income in India and pay the relevant tax then utilise the dtta when declaring the income on her UK tax return.
Can anyone advise me of the best way to go about doing this? She almost certainly doesn't have the correct registration in India and doesn't want to be involved in sorting it out. I am reticent to start learning about the Indian personal tax system for one smallish client. I am tempted to use a specialist firm in the UK for support so if anyone has any recommendations I'd be grateful!
The only work around I can see is for her joint owner to declare and pay the tax then pay her net but there are obvious implications with her UK tax position.
Can anyone provide any thoughts/advice?
