If you have a Foreign or Expat employee you can set the Expat Employee by selecting the Employee / Pensioner Type as the "Expat Employee" under the Add New Employee section. Now in the Employee Selected Statement in Starter Checklist (Expat) option you can select the,
  • Option A- I intend to live in the UK for more than six months.
  • Option B- I intend to live in the UK for less than six months.
  • Option C- I will be working for the employer both inside and outside the UK, but will be living abroad.

In case your employee does not give you information about their present circumstances before their first payday then enter 0T as tax code for week 1/month 1 basis. Further you have to select “Yes” or “No” for European Economic Area citizen and EPM6 (Modified) Scheme Indicator options. Following the process you can process the pay and E-File the FPS in which the Expat Employee details will be automatically included in it.

Note: Starter Declaration should not be entered for Pensioner & Expat Employees'. In case entered you will be receiving an error message while E-Filing an FPS.
