  • Director needs UK National Insurance Number to register as an employer

    Hi, I am registered as a director of a LTD. I don't have a UK National Insurance number (NIN) and I'm from Germany. The HMRC website says I must live in the UK to get a NIN. But I need to have a NIN because I need to register as an employer (I'm the only employee in the Ltd). What should I do. Unfortunately, I don't get a NIN because I don't have the qualification "You can apply for a National Insurance number if you live in the UK and have the right to work in the UK". Here is the page: https://www.gov.uk/apply-national-insurance-number Does anyone have a good idea? Is there an online service to apply for a NIN for directors living abroad? Best regards
