I’m unsure

FIF Withholding Tax

I see that Craigs have started deducting a "FIF Withholding Tax" on Dividends from 01 April 2014. Surprisingly there has been no communication from Craigs about this.

Currently I am just adding it to the Foreign Tax Credit but technically I think it should be treated differently (ie if the portfolio makes a FIF loss then I should still be able to get the credit back as it is a Withholding Tax rather than a Foreign Withholding Tax) .

Is there going to be a provision in Sharesight to separate this (or is the tax treatment the same as a Foreign Tax Credit)?
