  • RE: Overseas Remote employee for a UK based employer

    Hello - thank you for the note. However to clarify - I have never lived in UK and don't plan to come to UK - I will be a permanent remote worker directly joining a UK company from India. I don't have a UK address or a NI number, Form P85 is asking for NI number. Also form P85 says to fill this form only if I have lived or worked in UK - in my case both are not valid as I have not lived or worked in UK. I am not an UK employee going abroad - I will be an UK employee directly hired in India and will work in India (will never be a UK resident). Is P85 still required?
  • Overseas Remote employee for a UK based employer

    Hi. I an in discussion with my prospective UK employer to for me to permanently work from Abroad (India) on UK payroll. I am an Indian Tax resident and will not be visiting UK anytime. I have never worked in UK before and hence I dont have any UK address or National Insurance number. Wanted to check how can my employer run payroll without deducting tax or NI - I read somewhere that we can request for a NT tax code, however regarding National Insurance there is no clarity as I have never visited UK and will not be visiting or working out of UK for my prospective employer anytime soon. Any help in this regard is appreciated.
