UK Payroll Issues

U.K. revises rules on how short-term business trips by employees from other countries are taxed [HMRC website]: The United Kingdom’s tax agency, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), has amended its Employment Procedures (EP) manual with respect to the taxation of income earned by employees from other countries who are working in the U.K. on a short-term basis. In most circumstances, if employees from other countries perform duties in the U.K., they are responsible for U.K. income tax on a “pay-as-you-earn” (PAYE) basis, regardless of how long they are in the U.K. However, employees who are residents of a country with which the UK has a treaty agreement are not subject to income tax in the U.K. if the resident is in the U.K. for less than 183 days of the taxable year, and certain other conditions are met. Prior to the amendment to the EP manual, when determining the 183 day limit, a partial day counted as a partial day, not a full day. Therefore, someone spending three consecutive 8 hour days working in the UK was regarded as having spent one day in the U.K. Effective April 6, 2009, each partial day spent in the U.K. is now considered a full day. Therefore, someone spending three consecutive 8 hour days working in the U.K. is now regarded as having spent three days in the U.K. for purposes of the 183 day limit.

★★★★★
Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.
★★★★★
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.
★★★★★
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
