Tax Information for UK Oil & Gas Workers

Gas & Oil

Oil and gas workers enjoy several benefits where taxes are concerned. Despite the hard work and harsh conditions that they are
subjected to, they can look forward to tax returns and refunds. It is vital, however, that they have a tax plan, especially if they
are a non-resident worker. Are you one of them?

The first thing you need to do is to check the Double TaxationAgreement (DTA) relevant between your country and the UK. Some DTA’s exempt employees from paying UK tax, if they work for an overseas employer and has been out of the UK for a long time.

Others may also allow you to claim full UK tax relief, if you work full time on an offshore installation, provided that you meet
certain criteria:

  • Your country or place of fiscal residence
  • Where the rig or installation is located, whether it’s in the
    UK sector or non-UK sector of the North Sea
  • The total amount of time you spend on the rig per year
  • The place of residence of your employer and other pertinent
    factors

Self Assessment (SA) Tax Return

If you are assigned in the UK sector of the North Sea, you need the SA tax return so you can claim full tax relief. This is because
the tax back is usually available under the DTA.

Tax Refund

Even if you did not overpay your taxes, you are still entitled for a relief, what with all the taxable expenses related to your
work. To claim oil and gas refund, you must have the P45 or P60 form from your employer. If you work offshore, you also need your
SA tax return, employment pages, non-residence pages, and other relevant supplement, depending on your circumstances.

Because the UK tax system is complicated, especially for oil and gas workers, it is best to seek professional help and advice from
tax experts.
