Unlikely to be VAT, probably subject to income tax, but if all her income is <£12500 she proably wont pay anything, will she?

Hi thanks for reply
Yes her income is below £12500
on the S/ Assessment would this be classed as other income ?

Baffled by this one.

Would what be treated as other income?

Why the reference to VAT on pensions ?

Sorry my mistake income tax.
So just to confirm the pension from Holland is not treated any differently than the pension from UK.
Due to income being under £12500 her s/assessment would be zero . The foreign pension doesn't need to be classified as other income .

I'm not sure if you are even asking a question now.
In any event you should advise 'your friend' to speak with a 'different friend'.

If the lady was doing a paper return, the Dutch pension would go on the Foreign Pages (form SA106) along with any Dutch tax - there are notes that accompany the SA106. However, it does sound a bit pointless if the lady's total income is below the personal allowance. Maybe try to persuade HMRC that a return isn't required.

Exactly the way I would go unless there is significant other investment income to prevent it
Possible that HMRC do not know how low the foreign income is
