IMPACT – HIGH
The United Kingdom has issued new guidance for frontier workers who want to continue working in the U.K. after the Brexit transition period comes to a close.
Frontier workers who have already been working in the U.K. by Dec. 31 will be able to maintain their frontier worker status but must apply for a permit to do so. Frontier workers arriving on or after Jan. 1, 2020, will be required obtain work authorization under the U.K.’s new points-based immigration system.
Background: The new guidance builds on guidance provided in September.
Analysis & Comments: Employers with employees who live in another country are encouraged to work with Deloitte to make sure those who are eligible to maintain their status do so and obtain the necessary frontier worker permit by July 1, 2021. Where there is a potential for employees to commence a working pattern which meets these guidelines, employers should think about formalizing the arrangement before Dec. 31 so that they can benefit from this permit type.
