Be careful with this one. Working remotely from the UK is still considered working IN the UK. If your employer has a UK office of any sort, you should probably be paid out of that office so that the appropriate taxes and social insurances can be taken out of your pay. If not, you probably need to be looking into setting yourself up as a "contractor" so that you are paid by invoice and then remit the appropriate taxes and social insurances yourself.

If you haven't looked into the legalities of this arrangement, your answer will probably set off some alarms as your visa is being considered. Can't tell you what the "right" answer is for this question - but I'd consider perhaps formally resigning and then re-establishing your remote working status after you get to the UK. (In which case you could truthfully say you are planning to work in the UK, and are pursuing opportunities, including remote work for your current employer.)
Cheers,
Bev

Thank you..There is not a UK office and I know I have to pay taxes there as I will be an independent contractor once I move since I will make my own hours ect...
Wasn't sure the best way to do it.

I appreciate you reading this and giving me your advice.
I hope all other responses look ok then ;-)
thanks!
