just be upfront and ask is this tax free.

good luck and welcome.. if your coming from the uk, be prapared for a challenge. things do not work the same as they do in the uk.. but its a good experience.
I work for a UK company and get paid in the UK but as I am working and living out here I am classed as a non resident so my tax code is NT (no tax). All you have to do is contact the tax office, fill out a form and they advise your company of your NT tax code. If you do not do this then you will be taxed as the company will go by your tax code on your P45 from your previous employer. You will however have to pay full national insurance for a minimum of 12 months from the dae you leave the UK.
