Webinar round up: Brexit, COVID-19 and Internationally Mobile Workers with PEM Accountants
On 2 March 2021, we were delighted to be joined by PEM Accountants at a webinar which explored how Brexit and COVID-19 have affected how and where companies employ staff and provide services.
The EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement signed in December finally provides some sort of framework for those wishing to send UK nationals to Europe to deliver services to overseas clients and vice versa.
The end of the Brexit transition period and the obligation for UK companies now to sponsor new EU national workers not entitled to status under the EU Settlement Scheme also means that companies are rethinking where they employ staff and how they can navigate the UK immigration system.
Meanwhile, COVID has upended the traditional approach to workplace location, enabling or forcing many employees, both UK and foreign nationals, to work from the UK and overseas during the pandemic when they are usually based elsewhere.
Kate Millard, Director of Employment Taxes at PEM, and Tim Hayes, Legal Director at BDB Pitmans went through the tax, employment and immigration issues relating to international workers in this particular set of circumstances.
