The overall requirements when an individual leaves the UK to work overseas vary depending on factors:
how long the employment is expected to last
in which country the employment will be located
whether there will be more than one employer
whether the employer(s) will be UK based or overseas
HMRC guidance leaflet CWG2 (updated annually) provides advice on RTI for employers. This includes the circumstance of an employee leaving the UK to work elsewhere in full or in part, but remaining employed by the UK entity. The HMRC guidance provides further practical assistance.
When the employee leaves to go abroad, the reporting requirements for the existing UK employer responsible for payroll differ depending on whether the individual will be on the payroll of a different employer (based in the UK or overseas) or continuing to be contractually employed solely by the same UK employer. The latter category includes the situation where there is an overseas company that administers the pay and / or is responsible for funding.
