Thanks for getting back to me.
The company I contract is based in the UK. I don't really reside anywhere at the moment. I have been backpacking for the last 2 years. I don't have any property. My mailing addresses are for a friends flat in London and my parents house in NZ.
I believe I'm not a tax resident of anywhere. Is that possible? If so how do I make the most of it?
I'm not sure what you mean by the following part.
2) The employer is based in the UK (and they should be employing you as an employee as they do not fit the remit to allow you to be freelance/self employed)
I can't find a way to attach one of my contracts to this chat but it says:
THIS AGREEMENT is for crewing as Relief Skipper, on a self-employed basis, on board the Client’s vessel,
and on behalf of <omitted> under the terms and conditions below: (Job No: <omitted> )
The way the company works is that they find the customers who need the boats moved. They find volunteer crew and then contract a skipper to move the boat. Does your comment still hold?
