Well, from a legal point of view, there may be some things to think about. If you have people working from a country in which you don’t have a permanent establishment (‘satellite workers’), there is a whole list of considerations – and the rules vary in different countries. In some, you will find that certain steps are forbidden, whereas in others, they may be allowed or encouraged.
Our checklist covering 20+ countries, sets out what is (i) forbidden; (ii) required; (iii) recommended or (iv) not required under the rules of each country, when you, as a foreign employer, hires someone to work there. In the chart below, you will see each country represented by a colour that shows the average of its scores across various different topics (listed below), to give you an indication of how generally restrictive or permissive the country is.
