Uncertain Times for Overseas Businesses
In these uncertain times and with events such as COVID-19 and Brexit, many international companies who have a UK presence to enable them to employ contract staff with specialist skills are choosing to withdraw from the UK. Overseas offices are expensive to run – costs for legal teams, HR staff and payroll staff all mount up when looking to pay your contractors by PAYE* (Pay As You Earn) and businesses can no longer afford to incur the additional expense.
However, you don’t need to have that satellite office and bear those additional costs, there is an alternative
