  • As I understand a dammit clone for each role would solve this.

  • MS Teams?

  • Not quite, that's a basic understanding. It gets more nuanced. You don't need to be in UK 181 days.But ultimately if you pay tax on UK then you can claim double taxation agreement and if you spend too many days in France you'd simply pay the % due above UK rate. Though if you're in France less than 181 days you can avoid that. But you can't have residence and not be a tax payer. So if you want to be french resident you'll need to pay double taxation agreement to keep it. You can spend less that 181 days in UK and be a taxpayer if you meet their 'ties test'.
    I looked into this a lot for my wife, before she said fuck it and quit.

  • This. Procurement and finance need to get their heads out of their arses.

  • France also has a cross border working sort of situation (might be location specific, as we're in a big cross-border working area) where you can work up to 29 days per year from "home" without incurring taxes in France. Social care (ie medical, pension etc) kicks in at 50%.

    However all of it is self declared so it becomes a matter of how honest you want to be. That said, if @Dammit is getting a visa to live and work in France, I assume the tax authorities would assume that they would be paid by the local office and paying normal income tax so UK residence would be the exception not the rule.

    On citizenship, Luxembourg is 5 years residency but with a fun language exam thrown in. Nobody NEEDS to speak Luxembourgish here as if you speak French or German as well as English it's rare to find a situation that you can't handle (kids leave school speaking all 4 languages to a good level so anyone below 40-ish will manage to communicate). I absolutely appreciate the wish to keep the language alive but it's led to a lot of language courses designed for (mostly) Brits to pass the exam but not actually speak Luxembourgish. I'm learning, but more for "fun"/integration as I have an EU passport anyway.


    I guess it's something.

    They can forget about financial equivalence not gonna happen, the rest are positive and realistic steps.

  • ^^ Work is looking at/starting the process of getting me a Shengen visa simply to avoid the potential for hitting the 90 in 180 limit, although I'm a little unclear as to whether this will work as expected. We shall see.

  • They really cannot think of any benefits can they?­866295809

  • Six years on and it's been nothing but project fear = project reality.

    And thousands of fellow mainland EU born nationals in the UK are still stuck in EUSS limbo, the backlog is massive.

    And how the Tories smiled end of 2019 when they defeated Labour's amendment to make it a voluntary status so that people wouldn't end up with problems renting, getting jobs and benefits...

    It is still a political mess in Northern Ireland as well, this was supposed to make things better, but in the end it was often just a vote from people against people they don't like (immigrants or "the middle class" well the English class system does suck enormously seen from here) with zero honesty about how every plan will also have downsides.
