I have British Passport, do I have to worry about work permits and stuff in the EU.
I may have a road trip soon doing stuff in the EU.
I know there are variants in British passports, I have the right of abode deal. Which I believe has all the rights and privileges of a British citizen.

I think coming over on for a couple of days to do some work for a few days is treated a little different
I know when I worked for a US centric company, people would come from the UK to do work for several weeks and go back and then come back.
That I think is a little different than working in the netherland for 6 months on a contract.
From what I have gleaned (not confirmed) that there is a clock for paying local taxes in the EU and if you pass the clock time, you have to pay the local country tax and the home country as well
If you are over here for 2 - 3 days.. it is a little different I think.. but if you are concerned, check with one of the major tax firms or look on line - most eu countries have info - as does that contractor uk website
As for me, as I am a yank in john bull land, I have to pay tax to the US and the UK. but the first $80000 for the US is tax exempt. At the current exchange rate, that is roughly 40000 GBP _________________ John Hardesty
