thank you very much for this.
would the above information change if i spend less that the 183 days in the UK?
also, as i have a german passport, would the reciprical arrangement re health insurance still apply to me? when i registered, my passport was adjusted to state: Berlin as my place of residence despite me telling them about my arrangements.
thank you in advance.
As you are being paid under PAYE by an UK company the situation will not change. If you are effectively moving to Germany then you should submit a Form P85 to HMRC. On receipt HMRC will classify you as non resident for the tax year after your date of departure and also split the leaving year into two parts, one resident and one non resident. Once non resident you may spend up to 91 days in the UK in any one tax year without risking your non resident status. HMRC will adjust your tax code number. This will put you under the German tax regime.
The reciprocal health agreement would still apply, but maybe in reverse if you fully reside in Germany! Which ever way the cat jumps you will be covered.
