Apologies for the slow response but i am presently offshore in Australia
The Agency who is arranging the work is based in the UK and they have told me that they require it to be paid within the UK to keep themselves compliant. I think it is to ensure that it goes through the UK tax system. I am ok with that but need to know if I will be liable for tax or NIC given i shall be working and living outside the UK
I believe I can become NT for tax and therefore will not pay tax, but i am unsure about NIC
Thanks for the reply - very informative. I guess the only thing to ask is if there is an alternative to a Ltd Co
The agency are clear that they will not pay me directly. At the start they said they would pay me via an umbrella company but that is not an option for me as i will neither work nor live in the UK. Their advice was therefore to form a Ltd Co - I did hear that if I did that then I would be liable to employer tax at 13.8% on earnings over around 140 per week??
Hope this helps. If you are not satisfied, please do NOT rate but get back to me ASAP.
