    I've been working in the UK for the past 2 years and have returned to Australia due to my Visa ending and Covid.
    I am looking to open a LTD as a Contractor/freelancer for remote working around the world. Many of my clients will be UK based and I am looking to hire LTD contractors as well to work for me.

    Is there any issue with this as I don't have a valid resident permit to live in the UK. I would not be living in the UK but thought this would be the easiest set up. Otherwise I can start the company in Australia and hire LTD contractors from UK for the work.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Hi Jo,

    You need an EOR company for this- an employer of record.

    Some of the larger ones include People 2.0 manpower

    i can't post a link to an explanation, but try googling "peoworldwide what-is-an-employer-of-record"

    gives a good explanation of what they do!
