PEM and BDB Pitmans invite you to a webinar in which they will explore how Brexit and COVID have affected how and where companies employ staff and provide services.

Brexit and COVID have brought about huge changes in 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 has 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 will talk through the tax, employment and immigration issues relating to international workers in this particular set of circumstances. Areas they will discuss will include: –

  • What are the tax and payroll implications in the UK and overseas if a worker works outside of the UK?
  • What tax and payroll obligations do I have in respect of employees coming to work in the UK from overseas on a short or longer term basis?
  • What employment laws will apply to employees located overseas?
  • Can I bring mobile workers back into the UK office once the pandemic is over?
  • Can my UK staff travel to the EU on business now?
  • Can business visitors come to the UK from the EU on a short-term basis?
  • How easy is it to sponsor foreign workers into the UK under the new points-based immigration system?
  • Do I need to undertake checks on EU national employees to ensure they have the right to work in the UK post-Brexit?
