    I don't want to refer you all to the facebook group as I don't want to upset the admins here but I used a para-legal to help me with the docs.

    Main issue is the A1 certificate from HMRC, everything else is easy. There is a list on the Spanish Manchester and London consulate sites.

    You can use your limited but the 24% flat tax rate probably won't apply if you use that route (it won't be 100% confirmed for a while), you would have to use a U.K Brolly and swallow the U.K NI deductions. I am OK with that but others may not be.


      The itch I keep on coming back to scratch!

      Current thinking is why don't I incorporate an Irish company and at renewal, move the contract across to that. I don't think that will create an issue with my US client.

      Assuming my visa application was successful I could then pay myself something like £ 50k and pay 24% tax on that, whilst the Irish Ltd company pays only 12.5% Corp. Tax on the rest. IR35 (or similar) almost completely goes away and I have free movement throughout the EU. Company is building up a big some for my retirement (c. 3 years). Rent my UK home out and make a bit off that whilst its value rises. **** all tax to the UK is a big bonus.

      See what happens under Labour but what am I missing here?
