Work in the UK for foreigners

Postby Vadim » Fri Jan 22, 2016 12:23 pm

Hello,

I'm a web-developer and I live in Russia. I don't have UK work permit but in spite of that I worked remotely on a London company. I sent them my invoices and they paid them via bank as all their other bills. This money went into my bank account in Russia.

I'd like to know if this way to work was legal or not? Or maybe you know any other legal way to work on UK companies without acquiring UK work permit?

Thanks for your help in advance.

As long as you continue to live in Russia and pay your taxes there etc, it appears to be fine.
