Withholding tax is so confusing to me! I am in the process of buying a Turkish tv drama show, which I will sub-license to a TV station in Russia. Essentially I am buying low and selling high to make an income. I won't be showing the programme on my own channel (don't have one) and will only make a profit on the difference between the buying and selling price. My question is this, what are my obligations under the UK's withholding tax regulations? Do I need to pay 20% of the invoice amount to HMRC and tell the Turkish side to claim it back via the existing tax treaty in place? Yours, confused.
