There has been a major shift in the way global companies operate in today’s economic environment with ever-changing employment issues and complexities.

With companies considering their ecological footprint, as well as factoring in ramifications from COVID-19, an increasing number of employers are evolving their employment policies. Much of this focus is now to enable flexible remote working that complements their existing global mobility programs. As a result, businesses have a flexible international network of talent required to meet their organisational and strategic goals.

For individuals, it significantly increases their employment opportunities, lifestyle, flexibility and work efficiency given they are able to work from any location in the world. However, the change in the workforce setup and flexibility also increases tax complexities for employers.

Employers, now more than ever, will need to consider their corporate and employment tax obligations in a tax system that doesn’t necessarily react as quickly to the global changes and trends.
