Congratulations, you’ve taken the first step to saving yourself a lot of time and money. When you relocate to the UK for work, HMRC allows up to £8,000 of your relocation costs to be claimed against your tax in your first year of work. Just click here to register for umbrella and one of our friendly team will be in touch as soon as you touch down in the UK.
I’ll save how much?
As long as you register before you arrive in the UK, and we’re your first UK employer you’re able to claim up to £8,000 in relocation costs. This includes things like your flights and your temporary accommodation when you first arrive in the UK. It’s free, with no obligation, and you stand to save £8,000.
How do I claim back the cost of my relocation?
Just complete your details below and leave the rest to us. Shortly after you arrive in the UK, one of our friendly experts will be giving you a call to take you through the final stages. Registering is the first step to saving plenty of money once you start working in the UK.
How does it work, exactly?
Forest is an umbrella company – in the UK it’s a common way to work. It means you can work as many different roles as you like, while retaining just the one employer. The main benefit though is that you’ll save a lot of money. You’ll benefit from lower taxation on a weekly basis and you can claim back the cost of your relocation – a value of up to £8,000 – in your first year of work in the UK. As a final bonus, most UK employers and agencies will actually give you a higher rate of pay if you work through an umbrella company! Here’s a typical example of the savings you’ll make.
Jamie and Sandy headed to the UK in early 2012. They registered with forest before they left. When they arrived in London (after plenty of fun along the way!) they both needed to start work ASAP. They found work after only a couple of weeks through one of our partner agencies, and after one quick phone call from forest they were ready to start saving.
Jamie landed an agency role earning £10.80 per hour on an umbrella rate
His standard week was 50 hours
His typical weekly spend on expenses to get to work and so on was £70
His relocation cost (flights, temporary accommodation, meals) was £4,000
Jamie’s normal weekly take home pay would have been: £372
But by working through forest his take home pay increased to: £447
Sandy got her dream agency job paying £18 per hour on an umbrella rate
Her standard week was 40 hours
Her typical weekly spend on expenses to get to work and so on was £70
Her relocation cost (flights, temporary accommodation, meals) was £4,840
Sandy’s normal weekly take home pay would have been: £479
But by working through forest her take home pay increased to: £569
Working through forest turned out to be the best thing Jamie and Sandy could have done. So do what they did and register now! Spend 2 minutes and save yourself up to £8,000
