I’m staring a thread on Cross-border working taxation. Thought it best to have it as a separate topic, coz the tax issues won’t be just for 2021 , (though got to do the first return for December 2020.
Cross-border health and S1’s have I hope been well covered in my thread Health insurance proof before WA deadline- my duck is not quacking
(admittedly not the clearest title)
and another started by @robwebber
Rob – hope your S1 ducks are coming home to roost
There was also another thread from 2017 very much self-employed but the poster decided to set up as micro-entrepreneur.
In this thread I would like to reach out for advice and guidance from UK cross border workers residing in France who have done tax returns?
Now I am UK employed, but I / others would also be interested in self employed advice, not least because moving from full time to part time might also be on the cards for many people as they ease into France life?
Particular questions are –
When declaring the UK employment income in France can we, as KPMG suggest, deduct 10% of the gross salary and the UK NI contributions (yes I have the S1 and reducing the UK earnings declared will help limit pushing my UK pension taxable in France into higher or stratospheric tax bands!)
Any other allowances allowed – e.g. travel (not that there’s any of that at the mo)
Also any help with what to do with HMRC will be VERY welcome – I spoke with a ‘specialist’ and she advocated the SA109 – but looking at it, it doesn’t seem to apply, coz obs. I’ll be in the UK more that 16 days in the year commuting? Looks more like a dual tax resident situation?
And any other stuff us frontaliers may find helpful – e.g. updates on the social security suspensions remote working limitations / commuting requirements etc.
