BREXIT: A1/S1 Applications under EU Regs 883/2004
At a recent British Embassy Outreach meeting, the UK Ambassador to France was asked by PetersonSims in the Q&A session whether consideration had been given to the continuing application of the EU Regs 883/2004 (relating to the place of payment of social security contributions for posted workers and workers pursuing an activity in two or more EU states). The Ambassador confirmed that the status quo will be maintained for those covered by the Withdrawal Agreement. This would infer that the current rules relating to A1 and S1 certificates will remain unchanged, post Brexit, for such individuals.
We stress that this was a verbal response to our question and we are seeking a written response from the Embassy to confirm this statement. Furthermore we have asked for a statement regarding the position of future workers who are not covered by the Withdrawal Agreement.
