I feel it's a complicated wording question.
I am an international student studying in the UK as a PhD student. I received a research prize from an Italian academic society for training purposes (I am needed to spend a month in Italy doing research). The prize is worth €3000 and subject to 30% Italian income taxation.
The coordinator from the society indicated that I could ask for a certificate of residence from the UK tax authority to avoid double taxation. I am still very perplexed about my situation.
1. Would I be taxed in the UK? (I am also a recipient of a PhD tax-free studentship)
2. Has anyone ever required the certificate from the HMRC? Can you please share your experience and the process?
3. I am in Italy now so I am not sure what I could do. If the Italian side deducts the taxation, will I be able to claim it back when I return to the UK?
Please let me know if there is any source of information that I could read.
Is research prize from Italy taxable in the UK for a non-domicile resident?
