Moira, thank you for your prompt reply and for additional information.

Your question is
What are my tax obligations, and do i have to do anything to register etc now?

Your tax obligations will be no different from before..
The LTD company will raise invoices for services rendered as usual and account for the income as income of the LTD company.

You will continue to draw your salary from the LTD company under PAYE.
The company will bear any expenses incurred on this contract as normal business expenses.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.

At the end of my tax year will I have to pay Danish tax on monies received?

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 1 year ago.
Moira, thank you for your reply.

Your company is based in the UK and you are doing a short term contract.
The company would pay tax on the profits (including this contract) to HMRC here as the business address is UK.
You being an employee of the the LTD company would pay income tax on your salary under PAYE to HMRC.

There would be no need to pay Danish tax as your employment is with a UK based company.

I hope this is helpful.
