“Great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people”
Working in a dynamic world increases the focus on people - the team that makes up your organisation. Getting the right mix of talent and diversity to your team might require you to employ multi-national individuals, however this should be carefully considered in order to ensure that the correct tax and legal procedures are adhered to.
Considering the continuous changes to rules and legislation is not an easy task. Incorrect tax treatment or non adherence to the required legislation may lead to unpleasant circumstances with your employees as well as incurring unpredictable employment costs.
