    What was the accelerated timescale? The house building stuff does some sleight of hand w/ 5 years funding and 8 years delivery, but I think that is the same timetable and money they announced before....

    But not many new promises that I could see(?) It's the usual pattern of announcing something once, then re-announcing it N more times.

    Employees must have been furloughed for a minimum of three weeks by today, so the effective closing date for new applicants to the CJRS was 10 June. In short, you've missed out on the CJRS, as I...

    It isn’t HMRC that decides, it’s Parliament and HMRC frequently has no clue about the legislation that binds them. In contrast, professionals do, so always speak to them first.

    Yeah, calling HMRC probably won't resolve anything. :laugh You simply cannot rely on their advice for atypical situations (because they would rather pull something out their **** than say they don't...

    I am speaking from personal experience too having done this several times. You are non-resident from the moment your residency ends. Although the determination may be retrospective, the reality...

    If you complete a SATR, then you don't need to complete a P85, but I think the OP would be looking for a timely NT code to pass on to the fee payer, probably well before their SATR is due and I think...

    I'm just speculating, but my overall point is that absence of an adequate RoS ("not unreasonably fettered") should not preclude a pass, but it does put pressure on the other elements. Adding stuff in...

    You should mount your bamboo on a hinge system so that you can hinge it up when a viewer calls and hinge it down afterwards. Painting a 3mm steel sheet with bamboo would also work.

    It depends on the jurisdiction and governing law in your contract, but I assume it’s a US state. In that case, you’d be best to hire a corporate collection agent in the relevant US state and I doubt...

  23. The NT code should apply once you’ve submitted...

    The NT code should apply once you’ve submitted your P85, I think. This would provide relief from PAYE taxes, but not NI. In short, you would avoid a deemed payment with a large chunk of tax removed,...
  24. I think the answer is that some tax will be taken...

    I think the answer is that some tax will be taken upfront (NI, AL) and some portion of that may not be recoverable (perhaps ErNI, AL). The legislated appeals process is pretty weak and I cannot see...
  25. No, they will apply your actual tax code. I think...

    No, they will apply your actual tax code. I think you can get an NT code as soon as you send your P85, assuming split year treatment. You may encounter clueless HMRC agents though, so I am not...

    OP, you also mentioned there's an agency in the chain that might be flexible. If that's true, then the agency is probably the fee payer and will be both responsible and liable, in the first instance,...

    This isn’t really a question about UK source income (it isn’t UK source income, it’s foreign source income of either a UK resident or a UK non-resident, depending on the facts). It's a question about...

    Sure, that is the ideal situation, if the OP is non-resident. If the fee payer further accepts that position, it should be straightforward. What we’re discussing here is the possibility that they...

    It isn’t him or his company that applies a tax code to a deemed payment for a private sector gig from April 2021, it is the fee payer. You seem to be missing that point(?) I am talking about post...

    Yes, it’s basically the minimum to hope for, but it won’t solve ErNI or, I suppose, the Apprenticeship Levy, if applicable. Overall, the best and correct approach is to convince the fee payer that...

    I think the question here is how the fee payer treats the payment from next April, based on the client’s status determination. The OP has limited control over this, beyond informing them that they...

    Yeah, sure, I said the same thing. They may not listen. But how are they going to not apply an NT code to a deemed payment?

    They may do that. They may insist. But they must apply your tax code when making deemed payments and your tax code will be NT if you are non-resident. In other words, I think the outcome is the same....

    By receive, I assume the OP means that the client is based in the UK. If the OP maintains bank accounts here and other ties, they may remain UK resident according to the statutory residence test.

    No, the general rule (including in the UK) is that you pay tax where the work is done (not where the client is based, for example) and you pay tax on your worldwide income where you’re resident....
