EU Interest & Royalties Notes
Use these Notes to help you complete form EU Interest & Royalties. If you need further information, please contact
HM Revenue & Customs. Our address, telephone and fax numbers are in Note 10.
1. Purpose of form EU Interest & Royalties
Form EU Interest & Royalties enables
a company that is resident for tax purposes in another Member State of the European Union
a permanent establishment in a Member State of the European Union of a company that is resident for
tax purposes in another Member State of the European Union
that is receiving interest or royalties arising in the United Kingdom to
claim repayment of UK income tax in cases where payments of interest and/or royalty income
have been made with UK tax deducted
apply for relief at source from UK income tax under the EU Directive on interest payments between
associated companies
where relief is due from such tax under the Directive on those payments.
It is not possible to ask HM Revenue & Customs for advance authority to pay royalties without deduction of tax. That is
an option available for interest payments only. Instead, Section 914 Income Tax Act 2007 provides for the UK payer of a
royalty to make a payment without deduction of tax if all the conditions for exemption set out in Section 758 ITTOIA 2005
are present.
Permanent establishment
The term ‘permanent establishment’ is defined at Article 3(c) of the Directive as ‘a fixed place of business situated in a
Member State through which the business of a company of another Member State is wholly or partly carried on.’
2. Who can sign the declaration on the form
A responsible officer of the company or permanent establishment should sign the declaration. An agent (tax adviser), or
other duly authorised person acting with the authority of the claimant/applicant may sign on their behalf.
3. Evidence of residence in a Member State of the European Union and where to send the
completed form
It is a condition of relief from UK income tax under the terms of the Directive that the beneficial owner of the income is
resident in a Member State of the European Union. The tax authorities of the country in which the company is resident
will therefore need to certify that the company or permanent establishment is resident in that country for the purposes of
tax. The appropriate office should certify the form and send it direct to HM Revenue & Customs.
4. Confidentiality
All the information that you provide to HM Revenue & Customs is confidential. We can therefore only discuss the
tax affairs of the company or permanent establishment with
an officer of the company and/or
any agent (tax adviser) who is nominated by the company or concern.
5. UK Interest and Royalties
Loan interest
Please attach a copy of the loan agreement(s).
Royalties
Where the company (or permanent establishment) is the originator of a process or design etc., please attach a copy of
the licence agreement between the company or permanent establishment and the UK payer of the royalties.
The EU Directive on payments of Interest & Royalties allows relief only to the beneficial owner of the royalties. The
beneficial owner is normally the originator of the work or product. If the company (or permanent establishment) is not the
originator of the product giving rise to the royalties but has acquired the rights, please also attach a copy of the licence,
contract or assignment under which the UK rights have been acquired.
6. Repayment claims and tax deduction certificates
There is no need to send tax deduction certificates with the completed form EU Interest & Royalties. Please make sure
that you have all the original tax deduction certificates and keep them safe, as HM Revenue & Customs may ask to see
them later.
7. Relief at source from UK income tax on future interest payments
This form of relief is available for UK-source interest payments only.
Relief at source from UK income tax on future payments of interest income is available in cases where
HM Revenue & Customs is able to issue an exemption notice under The Exemption From Tax For Certain Interest
Payments Regulations 2004 - Statutory Instrument Number 2622 of 2004, SI 2004/2622.
When relief at source is granted, you are required to tell HM Revenue & Customs at the address in Note 10, as soon as
possible, if there is any subsequent change to the material conditions underlying the granting of relief
(see Regulation 6 of SI 2004/2622) and which you have detailed in this claim form.
