The rise of remote working as a result of the global pandemic has transformed work methods. Several employers now have to decide whether to allow their employees to work from a different province or country.

But what are the tax implications for organizations?

Employers may have their tax compliance obligations significantly increased by the presence of an employee abroad.

In some cases, the presence of an employee working in another jurisdiction will be sufficient to create an obligation for the employer to withhold income tax and social security contributions from that jurisdiction.

The employer may also become subject to income tax in the jurisdiction where a teleworking employee is located.
