Following negotiations with His Majesty’s Government (HMG), the EEA/EFTA nations have re-negotiated the social security coordination rules ensuring that those moving between the UK and Iceland, Liechtenstein, or Norway can now benefit from the protected social security reciprocal agreements.

The Convention ensures that individuals who move between the UK and EEA/EFTA States and who are in the scope of the Convention will have their social security coordinated in respect of certain benefits including access to reciprocal healthcare and uprated UK state pension. The Convention also ensures that cross-border workers and their employers are only liable to pay into one country’s social security scheme at a time.

Self-employed workers will also benefit from the new regulations that came into force on 1 January 2024.

"I've booked the HR and Payroll Update course most years and during roles with at least 3 different employers. One thing remains the same; a course that is relevant, well delivered and enjoyable and that is key when trying to retain the many pieces of legislation changes to which payroll professionals are exposed."
