      Paul,

      I’m not sure how the Greek authorities would know what your global income was unless you told them.  For example, if you happened to be renting out a property in the UK and were earning taxable income then who would have precedent re tax ie HMRC or the Greek authorities? Likewise, if your savings are earning interest in a UK bank you will be either taxed automatically at source or, if a larger amount, will be paid gross and then have to pay tax on interest earned to HMRC.

      I can’t see HMRC, particularly in these cash strapped times, foregoing taxable income from a UK citizen in favour of the Greek authorities.

      This being the case the reciprocal tax agreement would come into force.
