Shannon Chamber and Mazars are delighted to invite you to a virtual presentation on Remote working – Tax risks and employment law issues for international businesses to be aware of”

During this webinar we will analyse two main topics: 

  1. Tax risks

COVID-19 has resulted in a significant increase in remote working in Ireland and other countries. As the pandemic does not look like it will slow down any time soon, foreign businesses need to be aware of the potential Irish tax implications of having employees working remotely in Ireland. Irish businesses also need to be aware of potential tax risks of their employees working remotely abroad.

Some of the issues that will be covered include permanent establishment risk from a corporation tax perspective as well as the employment tax and social security (payroll tax obligations) issues that Irish and foreign businesses need to be aware of in relation to their remote workers.


  1. Employment law / HR issues

Sonya will discuss the employment law issues and policies for a remote workforce. She will also provide practical advice on managing a remote workforce.
