Having just returned recently from a 4 week whirlwind tour of the UK, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Holland and Hong Kong; I lobbed back into ‘lil old Adelaide with the very strong desire to do it all over again. But this time in a slightly less frenetic pace.
I’ve searched high and low (ok, so I’ve googled a bit) for answers to the following question: Can you operate your business from a different country to the one which it is registered in? More specifically, can you do work for clients in the country that you will be residing in? Even more specifically, can this be done either without a UK Visa (the UK is where I intend on travelling) or can it be done on the UK working holiday Visa?
I’m interested in being able to do freelance and temporary development & design work during my stay in the UK, but there’s still fairly large grey areas surrounding what I can and can’t do whilst there. And it’s grey mainly because I run my own business, and most business owners don’t normally move countries and still try and operate the same business. Which is actually a whole other quandary I currently face; what to do with my business?
Has anyone had a similar experience, or can shed any light on the Visa questions above? If so, I’d really appreciate your advice.
