Offshore Funds with Reporting Status
This page is intended for persons subject to UK tax who are invested in Offshore Funds which may have ‘Reporting Status’ under the UK tax rules for Offshore Funds.
Under the rules, a fund is obliged to publish, for each of its accounting years, details of Reported Income per share for any of its share classes that have Reporting Status.
Understanding the rules
The rules are complicated. If you have any concerns you should speak to your tax adviser. Barclays does not provide tax advice.
If a share class that you have invested in does have Reporting Status, it is important that you check whether it has any Reported Income for its accounting year (in excess of distributions made for that year) for which the fund’s ‘Fund Distribution Date’ - six months after the fund’s accounting year-end.
If a fund share class has, for its accounting year, an excess of Reported Income over actual distributions it has made, and you are deemed to be entitled to a share of that excess (to the extent that you owned shares as at the fund’s accounting year-end), you will need to include that share of the excess in your Tax Return, in addition to any distributions you actually received during the tax year. As indicated above, your share of the deemed distribution will be taxed on you for the UK tax year in which the ‘Fund Distribution Date’, 6 months after the fund’s year-end, falls.
Distributions actually received are included in your Tax Pack issued by Barclays, as usual. Any disposals you have made out of interests in offshore funds with Reporting Status should also appear in your Tax Pack, as usual. However (as well as needing to add, to income actually received, any deemed income as above in your Tax Return), you will also need to adjust your CGT computation for any deemed income, in order to avoid double taxation.

The UK tax rules under the regime are highly complex and can materially affect your Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax (“CGT”) positions.
If you are invested in an Offshore Fund which does not have Reporting Status (or which has not had Reporting Status and/or ‘Distributor Status’ under the predecessor UK tax regime for Offshore Funds at any time when you owned interests in it), the tax consequences for you could be different.
We strongly recommend that you consult your tax adviser, and provide them with your Tax Pack to help you complete your Tax Return.
