The Malaysian Perspective: How mobile employees impact your organisation during the COVID-19 pandemic
LIVE Webcast online
The global COVID-19 Pandemic is creating havoc in your organisation. Your mobile employees are now restricted in their ability to travel internationally to and from Malaysia.
Have you considered the tax and immigration implications with the lockdown of your mobile employees in locations where they should not be?
- Would the days spent in a country due to restricted travel and/or quarantine affect the residency status of an individual from a domestic legislation and tax treaty perspective?
- Would remote working arrangements deem an individual deriving employment income in that location? Could he/she then seek protection under the relevant tax treaty?
- How are domestic immigration rules adapting to the current environment and allowing flexibility?
- Could remote working arrangements create potential permanent establishment (PE) for employers?
- How would other types of PE (e.g. agency, construction, etc) be affected?
Technical fees – gross taxation versus net taxation?
- Would the tax residency of companies be affected?
These are some of the areas we addressed in our webcast.
