>From what I can see, it is simple as long as you stay resident in the UK. If you stay resident, you get paid and taxed via PAYE as normal, regardless of where in the world you physically are at that point.
Just need to watch out for double taxation, I seem to remember places like Ireland will tax you if you are there for more than 9 months continuously.
>However I am happy to be corrected if someone can give me a link to what legal/tax issues a company has if its employees decide to work from another country.
Well the issues I encountered were down to more practical matters:
- Forget about working (at home) on any project requiring security clearance.
- Expect to have to pay out of your own pocket travel expenses to a designated base office in the UK.
- Expect not to be offered on-site work where it is cheaper and quicker to get someone more locally based.
- Expect to have to work the UK 'office' hours normal for the company you are employed by.
