So the question is, for those who know far more than me about this.
I am currently employed within an events company, and have "their blessing" to do this job as being so far away its not competition, and as in august spain technically "shuts down". I would be using up my holiday time and recuperating extra hours worked.
I am registered as living in Spain.
The theory is that I can be paid into my account in the UK, as this one months wage will not even get close to point where I'd need to start paying tax (over the year) and its the only UK earnings I am intending on getting this year. So technically getting paid should be easy.
Should I look for PLI in the uk? I'm worried that being registered as living in spain, they might not give me it, or worse they will give me it, but if something goes wrong and we check the fine print it turns out I'm not covered...
OR should I find some international PLI insurance here in spain?
Would I be able to use my current employer for this? The only drawback is that while my direct manager (the company lawyer) has no problem with this, the company director wont find out.... Hes got a bite as large as his bark so the lawyer told me its a "between us" arrangement.
Would BECTU membership be an option?
The Idea was originally to "rent me out" from my mothers autocue company so I´d fall under the pli and ni etc from there and all would be above board.. but shes converted to bectu and so its "named" rather than company-wide.
My passport, driving licence and bank account are all still registered to my parents address... technically I'm just registered as out of the uk in the tax office.
I am reading the BECTU Rules etc and It seems that just being a member gives me their PLI.. (correct?)
and they say this about oversees members:
So really that means thats if I register as being in spain, I have no PLI with them...
BUT I still have my passport, bank etc all under my parents address where I always lived, and it will only be for work within the UK.. so maybe its ok?
Maybe I should phone them on monday...
No, now I've found what I was looking for in the PLI "Key facts" pdf... where it clearly states for members RESIDENT within great britain.
