UK Resident employed by Dutch Company

How does Tax and NI work if I am a UK resident working in the UK but employed by a Dutch Company

I'm looking at an opportunity where I would have a contract of employment with a Dutch company. They have no legal entity in the UK.

I am resident in the UK and would be working for them in the UK. I don't want to act as a contractor and just invoice them, this is a salaried role.

My question is what is the mechanism for paying tax and NI, does the Dutch company need to do anything or can I register to pay HMRC direct. If there are options that would also be good to know.

Thanks

Yes, as you are an employee they would register with HMRC and pay your tax and NI. You will get a pay slip each pay period.

Edit: I got it wrong. Sorry. Just what this site is for, correcting you when you think you know the answer & it turns out you don't. Ouch.

I wouldn't ask here. You'll just get the wrong answer.

PNL is right that this may not be the best place to ask. I'm surprised you haven't had the comment "it's all double Dutch to me ha ha ha!" from one of our resident comedians.

Good luck.

We have been here already, although for a Netherlands employer, not a Dutch one:

Is Holland no longer part of the Netherlands?

I think you meant to say Luxembourg enployer!

Have a look at direct payment schemes. You set up a payroll in your name and apply PAYE to the gross amounts you are paid.

Thanks all, very helpful so far

Using the responses, links, and some further research it seems like because the employer is in the EU then under new rules since 2010 they have to setup and register to pay Employers and Employees NI I am responsible for paying tax either through a direct payment scheme DPGEN or via SA

Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on what's involved in an overseas employer registering to pay NI and what the ongoing admin burden would be

Hi,
To work in the Netherlands as an employee, you would need to be set up on a netherlands payrol company. We can possibly help you

Call this number and ask for Robert, 0131 526 3300 or
0131 516 6300 ask for Charles
