International update for contractors & recruiters

30 August 2022

Recruitment businesses

The size of your business makes no difference when it comes to being at risk from breaking international tax law.

While international star Shakira has hit the headlines over her tax in recent weeks, a number of big-name businesses have also been in difficulty. And, since the introduction of the Criminal Finances Act in 2017, agencies that place contractors that break domestic and global tax laws are now also at risk, so it’s even more important than ever to ensure you are operating compliantly.

Our colleagues at 6CATSPRO are experts in all aspects of international compliance. Read their latest round-up of global tax compliance news stories that demonstrate why it’s so important to remain compliant and on the right side of the law. The latest update covers India, Icelance, Israel and Malta.

Overseas contractors

Working overseas is now more complex than ever, with contractors facing a complex web of data protection restrictions, tax and social security hurdles.

On top of that, there’s a variety of health and safety entry requirements to understand. It’s particularly challenging for those who worked from home during the pandemic and may have lost track of the drastically changing regulatory environment. It was tough enough to keep up with the latest regulatory changes, immigration requirements and employment law to ensure you remained compliant when working overseas, and now it’s significantly harder.

That’s without factoring in the variety of ever-changing travel restrictions driven, in part at least, by Covid. Clearly, the world of international contracting is fraught with risks for professionals. Our colleagues at 6CATS International outline some examples of how post-pandemic restrictions are shifting around the world and how contractors can stay on the right side of the law, wherever you’re working.
