Webinar: Global mobility and ultra flexible working

Originally held on 10th February 2021

Watch our webinar from 10th February when we discussed both the huge opportunities and significant risks that come with remote working.


About this webinar

(Originally on Wednesday 10th February)

The pandemic has created a world of work where the majority of us are working remotely and many companies have ended up with a global workforce as employees have chosen to work closer to their family or friends.

This remote working comes with huge opportunities but also some significant risks. To provide a better understanding of the risks, we are being joined by Smith & Williamson, a leading provider of investment management, accountancy, tax, corporate and financial advisory services. In the webinar, the representative from Smith & Williamson will be deep diving into a variety of issues that must be considered such as tax.

We will also explore how companies can build a global perspective. Now that businesses have proven that they can operate remotely, there’s no reason why they can’t explore global talent pools.

Sign up to this webinar to make sure you consider both the positives and negatives so that you don’t get left behind or fall into tax complications.
