Services for expats working in the UK

The team at Macalvins can assist companies and their overseas employees – often referred to as ‘expats’ – who choose to make the UK their work base.

If you are an expat working in the UK, or you are company employing an international expat here in the UK, there are important tax matters that you need to be aware of.

As an individual, your tax status will almost certainly be affected by your change of workplace and residency from overseas to the UK.

Expat tax status is a complex area and needs careful planning to ensure that you are not paying too much tax.

If you are a UK company or a UK based branch or subsidiary of a non-UK entity, you need to ensure that you are paying your expats correctly depending on their tax status.
