Tax and Social Security requirements for Luxembourg

Please note; unless you have a Luxembourg set up you need to work via an umbrella company to pay tax and social security in country. We need this done from day one. Tax and social security is circa 24- 34%, the umbrella company pay you direct into your bank every month and the take care of all administrative work - insurance/indemnity and so on. Simple, easy, legal and a must-do for EU contracts. You have nothing to do but the work you are contracted to do and send a timesheet at the end of the month. They charge 550 euros per month. This is a simple one-stop-shop and the best way to work legally in Luxembourg.

You can also register a UK (or other EU country) limited company in Luxembourg via an umbrella company and an A1 form - higher retention (higher take home for you), More like 76% but you will have to do your accounts and your Limited Company must be existing, ie you cannot create one especially to do this!.
