In most countries employers make deductions from your gross pay for income tax. Many people find that after working in temporary employment in their home country or overseas that they are eligible to claim some of the tax they have paid back from the government.
This is something that you may pursue yourself, through the country’s tax authority websites, however there are many agencies that can organise this for you for a fee or percentage of the refund.
It is possible that some employers or contractors will require you to be registered as self-employed particularly if you are looking to work in the construction or security industries. In these circumstances, it would be likely that you would require a Unique Taxpayer reference number (UTR number) before you can start work. Applying for a UTR number can easily be managed with QuickRebates.
