    I understand this has tax implications in regards to time spent out of the UK but i didn't think this was linked to the A1 certificate?

    Thanks
    The A1 certificate only impacts social security. It has no implications on taxes.

    Hello all, unfortunately i have the same problem, but i am not self employed in UK. i work for a company and i am going to be a selp-employed in Greece. So I cannot find the right A1 form.

    I am going to have a company under my name in Greece and the Greek government asked me to have a proof that I am paying National insurance in order to avoid double payment for Insurance, this is a form called A1.

    I am looking on GOV.UK but I cannot find the right link to apply. The only I found is National Insurance: apply for a portable document A1/E101 if self-employed in European Economic Area (CA3837)

    National Insurance: apply for a portable document A1/E101 if self-employed in European Economic Area (CA3837) - GOV.UK

    It seems that this could be the right one but when I trying to complete the steps, it asking me personal information for Self-employment in the UK, UTR, etc. I am not self-employed in UK, so I assume that there is a different form to apply.



    So I need to send to Greece the A1 form which includes the Certificate of National insurance, to show that I am paying from day I started work in UK until present day.

    Have anyone any idea who can i find that form?



    Best Regards

    Stelios

    Hi Stelios,

    If you are going to be self employed, then the A1 form is correct.

    However, if you are going to have a Ltd Company in Greece then you wont be able to apply for a UK A1 Certificate, as you are employed by a Greek entity.

    The A1 is a posted worker form, so is to be completed either by a UK employer, or by a self employed person who resides habitually in the UK. You will need to understand what your status is going to be in Greece first.

    I have paid National Insurance in the past in the UK whilst working in another European country. In order to do this you need an employment relationship with a company in the UK. My agency employed me to do some "marketing" and I was expected to make a least three trips to the UK and carry out the work there. I was sent some marketing forms to fill out.

    In other words you need a provable employment relationship with a company, and where the work is carried out in the UK.

    Default A1 Certificate

    Hi All,

    I have the following case.

    I have my own Ltd. and I am about to start my contract with a company that is registered in Poland. This company assigns me to posts in different countries in Europe, e.g. Germany. Before I commence my assignment I have to provide the A1 certificate. I applied for it with HMRC but my application was declined. The key reason for it was that my Ltd. does not carry out substantial activities in the UK which is right. As an additional comment, I carry out work while in the UK as a self-employed.

    Did you have a similar case or know what actions should I take to be able to do my contract (given I have no A1 certificate) and at the same time comply with the regulations?

    Thanks for your advice in advance.

    No.

    Your A1 certificate was declined. Without that you are unable to comply with the regulations short of moving to the U.K. and reapplying.

    (The additional comment simply means that HMRC have obviously thought that it wasn’t substantive enough)

    Hi, It's based in the UK, though my assignments are outside of the UK. These assignments are for around 4-5 months. For the remaining time, I work in the UK but as a self-employed. #A1 #hmrc #a1certificate

    I think you need to get some specialist advice. Or raise an appeal against HMRC's decision.
