Hello people,

First off greetings to you all. First post!

I don't do much translation work nowadays unfortunately save the odd job here and there. The thing is I no longer work in the UK (where I used to do some freelance work) and have moved to Austria. An old customer however has contacted me about a translation assignment and I don't know how it works in terms of taxes? Do I need to register as a freelancer in Austria just because of one assignment or how would that work? The payment would even be into my UK account.

Please advise.

Thanks a lot

You need to comply with local rules. Where you get sent the money is irrelevant.
