Foreign income

Generally, your clients must declare all income they received from foreign sources during the financial year in their tax returns.

Foreign income includes:

  • business income
  • foreign employment income
  • most pensions and annuities
  • bank interest
  • dividends
  • royalties
  • rent
  • capital gains
  • personal services income.

Remind your clients that the foreign income data we exchange with other countries has increased in recent years, and that information is now automatically shared with us.
