The Effects of a Wandering Workforce on the Taxation of Corporations and Their Employees
|Thu. June 10, 2021
10:00 am - 11:00 am
When many businesses made the swift decision to embrace remote work due to COVID-19, the future was uncertain. Nearly a year later, with the pandemic still a key component in our lives, steps taken as a quick call to stabilize operations, have become routine. COVID-19 has both accelerated the evolution of the remote workforce and forced a change in business model for many companies.
While employees may enjoy the flexibility that this allows, employers must grapple with compliance costs and administrative burdens, reevaluate transfer pricing policies and update organizational policies to prevent unintended tax and other consequences on a federal, state and international level.
Please join us for a discussion on the challenges that come with a remote workforce and the need to reevaluate the steps taken around staff assignments, planning and other key issues as businesses focus on their new operating models.
