Work from home with confidence

Now is the time to look ahead and anticipate any issues your business could run into incorporating a more permanent homeworking solution—and even more so if that business is based in Luxembourg. The cross-border situation brings unique issues, regarding tax and governance especially. But a well-prepared business also looks at potential issues with IT equipment, recruitment, people management, and personal tax and social security. Here at KPMG Luxembourg we are ready to assist you with all your homeworking needs. 

How homeworking will benefit your organization

COVID-19 sky-rocketed homeworking into the spotlight. It has not only proven itself as a viable option, but in many cases a preferred one for employees. However, evidence shows employers are also reaping the benefits— homeworking solutions improve employee retention rates and help you woo top talent. Other added bonuses include reduced real-estate costs and the opportunity to cutback your carbon footprint. What’s not to like?
