soon to be leaving HK to return to UK and will be eligible to take my ORSO benefits as a lump sum when I go.
Since I will be working for the same group in the UK, they've said I can also leave it as it is until employer contributions are 100% vested, and then take the lump sum in a couple of years time.
My question is whether any or all of the lump sum would be taxable in the UK if I wait until I'm UK resident before receiving it.
From what I've read, I think the double tax treaty between UK and HK means that it would not be eligible for tax in the UK, since I've been working in Hong Kong for the full period when the benefits were being accrued.
any thoughts from tax experts or people who have been in a similar situation?
