Hi, I am a French citizen I've been living and paying tax in the UK for almost 5 years. My plan is to go back to France in July 2020. I was recently laid off (redundancy) from the UK company I was employed but I found a job (software engineering) in France and they want me to start asap. The problem is that I can't be employed in France without living there and as mentioned I will only move there in 3-4 months. They want me (and I want) to start asap, so the solution could be to sign up as freelance (self-employed - sole trader) for a period of 3-4 months and I should technically be able to start soon and invoice at the end of each month. I have a bank account in France, to prevent exchange fees, would it be possible to take payment on my French bank account. We are talking about a 3-4 months activity, what would this imply in terms of tax ? Is there anything I should be aware of except registering as self-employed on the HMRC website ? What is the waiting period ? Thank you in advance.
