I will be moving over to France permanently next month and I am struggling with the best way to sort out my income. I currently work for a UK employer and will still work for them when I move. Although I am paid as an employee, I do submit an hours sheet each month, as I am paid for the hours I work.
I will be looking to gradually reduce my hours with them as I obtain work in France and build up an income there - firstly I am looking at possibly working for Leggetts - I currently work in lettings in the UK, so already in the property industry - I know that with Leggetts you are self employed.
My question is - would I be able to change my UK role to a consultant for the company and invoice my hours, therefore registering as self employed as I would then be working for both a UK and French company in the same industry?
This would make my life easier as I can then put all my roles in the same “pot” (including any other works I may do in France in the future), rather than the issue I am currently having with the UK company dealing with me being employed with them in france
