The effect of the spin-orbit interaction on surrounding atoms for XMCD spectra are studied by a real-space multiplet-scattering theory. The present numerical calculation for Fe K-edge XMCD spectra from BCC iron demonstrates the importance of the spin-orbit interaction on scattering atoms, which has been disregarded in previous studies. These effects will be inevitable for K-edge XMCD analysis of light elements surrounded by heavy magnetic atoms.
