The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently changed the way we work and the places where we work, with many of these changes likely to persist even as the pandemic subsides. 
Home office has become a new normal in many companies. But remote work brings several risks, especially if performed from a country other than the employer‘s registered seat. Many assignments have been stopped, canceled or extended. These commitments  need to be reassessed after each change.

Are you aware of all your obligations?

Legislative regulation in cross-border situations is complex. This includes the income tax legislation, labor law, social and health security, EU legislation, and local legislation in the home and host country. The legislation is being constantly amended and the obligations are still increasing

What are the risks of non-compliance?

  • Fines levied against the company or employee, in the case of audits or inspections.
  • Higher or lower net income paid to the employees.
  • Cash flow issues.
  • Impact on employees’ trust and their dissatisfaction.
  • Potential impacts on corporate income taxes („PE“ risks).
