Expat workers must be reported to the UK tax authorities via a payroll. This is a complex area and we help our clients set up the right systems from the start. The UK payroll system deducts tax and social security payments at source – known as Pay As You Earn or PAYE.
Sometimes, internationally mobile workers may not be taxable in the UK but there will still be reporting requirements in the UK. Getting it wrong can be expensive in terms of penalties from HMRC, interest and even double taxation if you have paid an employee in the wrong country at the wrong time.
We specialise in providing UK payroll solutions tailored to your international workforce by making sure you have the right payroll in place. This includes UK modified payrolls, shadow payrolls, obtaining agreements with HMRC for foreign tax credits to be taken into account to reduce UK payroll withholding taxes and managing social security matters.
