I am a UK tax resident and self-employed in the UK. I have been offered a contract as a consultant (i.e. self-employed in the UK still and not employed) by a company based in the US.
Do I understand correctly that I do not need to pay tax in the UK as long as I pay through my self-assessment in the UK? I have been asked to complete a W-8BEN form for the US tax system, which as far as I can tell, takes care of a double-taxation agreement so that I do not pay tax twice.
Please could you confirm if there is anything else I would need to do for the double-taxation agreement?
Could you also confirm that I should not have to complete any more documentation for the US tax system, nor pay any taxes to the US?
Thank you very much for your help.
