What's required for an Italian to work in UK

We need to know requirements for 10 days work in UK by Italian nationals from Italian company

Didn't find your answer?

What requirements do we as a UK company need to use an Italian company to erect and dismantle a temp structure with 10 of it's workers for our event in UK for 10 days?

If your contract is with the Italian company then it’s their problem to make sure there workers have the correct permission to work in the UK.

So many things for your contractor to consider
- covid requirements for their workers, both on arrival in UK and on return to Italy;
- what the workers do between erection and dismantling;
- are the workers Italian citizens - different rules may apply if they are not
- VAT on the supply to you (hire of structure and associated labour). Likely to be in scope of UK VAT
- customs requirements for bringing in the temporary structure and returning to Italy

If I were doing this in the opposite direction (ie providing a temporary structure from UK to Italy)...well, I wouldn't.

The risk for you is that the contractor only realises that it's too difficult/complicated when it's too late for you to engage an alternative contractor.
