With many industry sectors offering global work opportunities, contracting abroad has become a possibility for many. Working overseas can be one of the most rewarding experiences available to contractors and comes with a vast range of benefits, including:
Higher pay ~ Experiencing different cultures ~ earning/improving a language ~ Developing new working styles ~ Building international networks
But it isn’t without its pitfalls; dealing with international tax and compliance requirements across the globe can be a huge challenge. Fortunately, Liberty Bishop’s international expertise takes the stress out of working abroad.
We handle all of the local registration requirements and then take care of all of the ongoing accounting requirements including invoicing, payroll, offsetting of expenses, and deduction and payment of taxes.
CAN I WORK INTERNATIONALLY?
There is a lot of misinformation around contractors working abroad, often focusing on the myth that you can work overseas through a UK limited company or UK umbrella company for up to six months without any in-country liabilities. But this is simply not the case and the risk of getting things wrong can land contractors with a huge foreign tax bill and more.
Any contractor considering an overseas assignment should, therefore, seek advice from a compliant solution provider as early as possible in the process. When done correctly, this ensures all necessary in-country taxes are paid, whilst still ensuring contractors maximise their take-home pay.
WHAT ARE MY NEXT STEPS?
With eight active in-country solutions, Liberty Bishop is perfectly placed to support you in becoming an international contractor. Our team of specialists will run through the details of your assignment with you and determine the best solution for your circumstances, focused at all times on compliance. Once registered, we’ll take care of all necessary in-country registrations and filings, leaving you free to get on with enjoying your time overseas.
