Staff working abroad for the BBC will have to pay back the difference between
the UK tax rate and the tax rate of the country they are working in – if it is a
lower rate – under new tax arrangements introduced by the national broadcaster.
Prior to this, foreign staff enjoyed more favourable tax rates than their
counterparts working in the UK.
Foreign staff are reportedly unhappy with the new arrangement, claiming the
low income tax rates they paid abroad compensated for the lower living standards
they worked under, The Guardian reported
UK tax rates range from 22% to 40%, while a country like Romania has a flat
tax rate of 16% and in Saudi Arabia, it is just 20% across the board.
The BBC claimed the changes were to make tax arrangements fairer for all its
staff, with staff paying higher tax rates, to be compensated accordingly.
