A UK resident, but Irish domiciled, taxpayer has income from the Republic of Ireland and other offshore sources

Overseas property business profits in respect of land in the Republic of Ireland are chargeable under ITTOIA 2005 s 268 on an arising basis.

The remittance basis does not apply. Does the arising basis also apply to any other income from pensions or deposit accounts or capital gains arising in Ireland if not remitted to the UK by an Irish domiciled taxpayer who has now been UK resident for more than seven years?

In addition what is the reportable requirement for this taxpayer with annual interest of less than £2 000 arising from a non-UK deposit account held outside the Republic of Ireland? Is an unremitted income of less than £2 000 claim possible for that income? If not it seems that there may be no purpose in retaining such a bank account.
