Seafarers Earnings (SED)
If you work at sea in any capacity whether on a fishing boat, a yacht, a cruise ship or any other type of sea going vessel, you know you face a different set of rules than most when it comes to paying your tax and national insurance.
It can be confusing and can easily cause you headaches you don’t want to have to deal with.
Some of the questions our current clients have come to us with were about the HMRC’s “Half Day Rule”, the “183 Day Rule”, Qualifying Periods, or the fact that you can only make a claim for Seafarers Earnings Deductions if you are “Employed” and you have a consultancy agreement that suggests otherwise. If you have questions about any of these topics or anything else related to your SED, we can help explain it all to you.
