work in UK and pay taxes in Switzerland

HI there!

I am a graphic designer resident in Switzerland but recently moved to London to look for freelance jobs.

Anyone can tell me if national insurance number is mandatory to freelance in design agencies ? Shall I do it or not ?

I would like to avoid to pay taxes in UK and pay them in Switzerland only.

Thanks in advance for your help and hints!

cheers
Francesco

If you work in the UK you have to pay your taxes there.
Anything else is tax evasion

NI is mandatory.
If you try to dodge taxes, it won't work - if you don't have a ni number, contributions will be deducted automatically at a higher rate

Yeah - don't you think every UK taxpayer wouldn't be doing this if it was legal

Starbucks somehow manage to - but that's another story.
