I’m being interviewed by a reputable company based in India to be their the sole employee here in London. Can they pay me salary from their India account to my bank account here in the UK or do they have to have a bank account in the UK too?

Hi,

How they pay you will be between you and them.

However if you are UK resident, regardless of where this is paid, the income would need to be declared to the UK through Self Assessment.

Thank you.

Hi, I have the same question here and read the reply that the oversea income should declared through Self Assessment. Then I have a question should I pay the income tax and NI by DPNI scheme or through Self Assessment for the oversea salary income? If it should be through Self Assessment, then I should make a DCNI scheme for the NI? Thank you.

Hi,
 
You can either chose to report the income through self assessment or if you also want to pay national insurance then you can consider the DPNI scheme.

You would not do both.

Thank you.

Hi, Thank you for your answer. If I report through self assessment but want to pay national insurance as well, should I do it by the direct collection (employee only NICs)? Thank you.

Hi,

You would need to speak to the National Insurance team regarding this.

Hi, Follow up to the previous question: If I report through self-assessment but want to pay national insurance as well, should I do it by the direct collection (employee only NICs)? After checking with NI team, they told me I need to perform a Direct Payment Scheme (DCNI) for paying the employee class 1 NI and provide me the employer PAYE reference with accounts office reference. But I find that in the HMRE free payroll software Basic PAYE Tools, it seems it is a must for paying the NI and income tax together. I cannot just pay the NI part. Is it a way to just pay the NI part or I should do is paying the NI and income tax first and do the self-assessment separately? Which one is correct? Thank you.

Hi,

You can either set up this scheme which will cover both your tax and National Insurance or you can speak to the National Insurance office about paying voluntary National Insurance if you are looking to top this up.

They can be contacted here:

Hi, Thank you for the answer. Just another question about the pension. While I input information in the Basic PAYE Tools, for the salary part it has 'Employee pension contributions'. For my case, my pension contribution deduct in every payment in Hong Kong. For example my salary is $100 and within that 5% will be the pension contribution so I will get $95. So in my case, where should I input my contribution in the PAYE tools, Pension contributions paid under 'net pay arrangement' or Pension contributions paid not under 'net pay arrangement'? OR for oversea pension contribution is not necessary to report in the PAYE tools? Thank you.

Hi HMRC Admin, On the flip side, does it mean for these situation I have a choice to NOT contribute NI, and just file annually through self assessment? Thanks

Hi,

Without knowing your current employment and residence circumstances, we are unable to advise you regarding National Insurance contributions.

Thank you.
