BREXIT – UK NATIONALSWORKING INTHE EU

We had all hoped that there would be more clarity on Brexit by now, but even though the terms of the UK’s departure from the EU remain unresolved, there are some key points to take account of now. GLOBALLY MOBILE EMPLOYEES If the UK agrees a deal with the other 27 EU member states, a transition period will come into force. A series of rules in relation to social security coordination have already been agreed for this scenario and these rules will be applicable until 31 December 2020 (or possibly later). We would expect the UK Government to enter into discussions with the EU during this period to agree further rules which will be applicable after the transition period.

Should we leave the EU without a deal, there will be no transitional arrangements and a direct social security impact on employees that you have sent/are sending to work in the EU, the EEA or Switzerland. If an employee with a UK-issued A1/E101 was already working in the EU, EEA or Switzerland, NIC would be paid in the UK until the form expiry date. If the end date is after the eventual Brexit day, the relevant EU/EEA/Swiss authority should be contacted to determine whether social security contributions will be due in that country. Helpfully, new social security agreements with Ireland and Switzerland have already been agreed. The agreement with Ireland will come into effect from Brexit day in the event of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit, but the UK and Switzerland have also completed a transitional social security agreement that would will apply until 31 December 2020 even if the UK leaves the EU without an agreement in place.
