Visa options for remote work


New Member

I'm from the UK, currently living in Germany and just received an offer for full time remote work from a US company. I hadn't even thought about needing a visa for remote work, but now I'm seeing that it's a complex issue. I'm not planning on relocating to or even visiting the US at any point. What are my options?

I have a German UG set up so was thinking perhaps I could just make a contract between the German company and the US company. This way I would be officially employed by my UG. Would this work or is there a much simpler way?

Us companies hire offshore workers all the time. However they do not pay US employment taxes for those employees and do not need USA visas to cover the relationship. It is typically done through a third party company who pay the local employment taxes and so on.
