Tax Residency Certificate
May I please give a bit of background -
I am planning to provide marketing consultancy to a manufacturer based in India covering - client introduction & management, credit checks & payment follow ups, product development all for & within UK. The business will be done directly by the manufacturer & UK clients, ie orders sent straight to client & manufacturer gets paid directly by UK customers. My role is only to introduce & look after them in general & I am based in UK.
I plan to charge a retainer fee (fixed) & commission charges variable depending on volume of business, once business hits a threshold, after which commissions kick-in, so it will be in future.
My client (Indian manufacturer) has asked for a Tax residency certificate whether - for a company or as individual, depending on how I structure it, so that they can pay me.
I am seeking inputs on -
1. What will be the best way to do it as a company or individual
(prefer to do as a company in order to put thru expenses)
2. Is it easier to get tax residency certificate for a newly formed company or individual (if at all it matters or it doesn't matter).
I appreciate in advance all the help in this regard.
