Hi @ms1967 ! I am still awaiting my visa approval, but in the meantime my company has looked further into it and consulted with their employment attorney (US attorney, granted). It sounds like I’ll be able to stay on as a part-time employee still paid through the US payroll, so US taxes will be deducted. I know I’ll still need to file a UK tax return and things may get a little sticky. But, I’m taking this as a temporary solution to wrap up a particular client project for 3 months, and will look for full-time UK work in the meantime. Even if it’s legal from my US conpany’s perspective, I don’t want to do anything illegal by UK standards, and I’m still unclear on that.

I’m sorry my answer probably does not help your situation! From what I understand, setting up as a limited company is a little cumbersome in the UK (but I could be wrong).

Let me know what you find out and end up deciding!

Make sure they get a certificate from the IRS showing you owe the US tax authority for Social Security payments. It will cost you a fair amount to file your UK self assessment so factor that in too, you'll definitely need UK tax advice from someone familiar with the US tax treaties.

Hi @margo sounds like you may have done this before, or are at least more familiar than I am! What other considerations should I be thinking of before taking this leap? When are U.K. Tax assessments due each year? I'll definitely want to find a tax advisor familiar with the US tax treaty. Thanks!

I did things wrong. Don't be like me! Get the tax advisor familiar with the UK and US tax treaties first.
