  • Work from UK for an US company

    Good morning. Let's see if anyone can help me with this issue i have.

    I'm moving to UK next month and the company I work for in US wants me to keep working for them remotely.
    Anyone knows what I need to do? What kind of contract I need to sign with my company?
    And once in UK, what do I need to do to? How should i fill out taxes? Should I receive the money in an american bank account, or a british one?
    Anyone in a similar position? Or working in UK for a foreign company?
    Maybe anyone knows where should I go or ask about this questions? My company is a bit lost about this since they've never done it before.

    Thank you and I would appreciate your help!

    What I do know is the time difference will be a factor. I'm in the UK but I play MMO a lot online with US players. East Coast is 5hrs behind, West Coast is 8hrs behind so if your company is in Seattle for instance you may find yourself working into the night. 9am to 5pm there would be 5pm to 1am in the UK.

      I do business with people in the UK a lot. Because the gig they hire us for is going to be in the US, they time shift their design staff so they are available during US Eastern Time. It's the only way things can be dealt with in a timely manner.

    Hi, you might find the UK Government website useful in finding your answers.

      I think it shouldn't be a problem since you will be working remotely. You can get the wages in USA bank account to avoid tax issues in the UK. It may depend on what visa category your are applying in the UK. I don't think you need to pay tax to the UK government.

        All I can suggest is consult a tax expert in the UK. If your company doesn't mind you moonlighting like this, maybe they could suggest someone for you.
        Income is Income and the Gov always seems to want their share of it.
        The other part of it is the company hiring you may possibly have to report under a 1099 or some other IRS form that they are paying you. No idea how that works either. If income money is changing hands, even with a US bank account, Uncle Sam always gets his cut.

          Thank you Appmacguy That site will definitely help.
          Faye F. Cagle i don't need to apply for a visa since I'm a citizen of Spain but definitely will have to see how to pay my taxes.
          PrintDriver I was also thinking I might enroll as a self-employee and submit invoices for work every time the company needs it. In that case the company would be hiring me for my work and not as an employee of them. A Tax Expert would help.

            Then you would be a business operating in the UK subject to all the laws and taxes of being a business in the UK.
            Definitely cover your bases.

              Good point, but in my opinion it's distracting in a portfolio and lacks attention to detail when displaying work.

              This might come across as a snobbish perspective. And I do work in a very weird corner of the design industry, where the theatrical/digital/print world all intersect.
