Say goodbye to these
compliance risks

You offer workations, we handle the risk – it's that simple.

Corporate Income Tax

What is the risk? Workationer constitutes a Permanent Establishment in the destination country. As a result, you’d have to register the company locally, attribute profits to the local business (branch) and file corporate tax.

What does WorkFlex do? We help you avoid triggering corporate tax liability in the destination country.

Here’s what could happen if you don’t prevent this:

Corporate tax at 20% to 35% over attributable profit
Administrative obligations exceeding € 50,000
Penalties for not registering and/or filing (timely)
Interest for late remittance of corporate tax 
Employer brand damage and other non-financial damage

Employment Tax

What is the risk? Obligation to set up payroll in the destination country. This implies that you have become an employer there and have to pay employment tax (generally consisting of wage tax and social security contributions).

What does WorkFlex do? We help you avoid triggering the obligation to set up payroll in the destination country.

Here’s what could happen if you don’t prevent this:

Employment tax up to 60% or even 150% (grossed up)
Administrative obligations exceeding € 5,000
Penalties for not registering and/or filing (timely)
Interest for late remittance of employment tax
Employer brand damage and other non-financial damage

Social Security

What is the risk? Workationer becomes socially insured in the destination country and/or drops out of the coverage of the home country's social security, both of which are not desirable.

What does WorkFlex do? We ensure that your employees remain covered by their home country's social security scheme.

Here’s what could happen if you don’t prevent this:

Contributions of €5,000 to €15,000 per year
Administrative obligations exceeding €5,000
Penalties for not registering and/or filing (timely)
Interest for late remittance of social security contributions
Employer brand damage and other non-financial damage

Labour Law

What is the risk? Local labour law becomes applicable to workationer's employment. This could result in significant additional financial obligations or in-kind entitlements to the employee, such as holiday pay (depending on the specific laws in the destination country).

What does WorkFlex do? We help you avoid the risk of local labour laws becoming applicable to your employees on workations.

Here’s what could happen if you don’t prevent this:

Penalties up to €5,000
Local entitlements such as termination arrangements
Employer brand damage and other non-financial damage

Work Entitlement

What is the risk? Workationer has no right to work in the destination country, creating an illegal labour situation which is generally very heavily penalised.

What does WorkFlex do? We make sure that your employees have the right to work in the destination country.

Here’s what could happen if you don’t prevent this:

Penalties exceeding €5,000
Company and/or employee ban of entering the country
Employer brand damage and other non-financial damage

What types of companies can benefit from using WorkFlex?

WorkFlex is designed for companies with remote-first and hybrid cultures, or those that want to offer workations as a perk to attract and retain top talent.

What compliance risks do you manage?

WorkFlex manages five main compliance risks associated with workations. They include corporate income tax, employment tax, social security, labour law, and work entitlement.

How do no-risk workations work?

The WorkFlex global compliance engine assesses five key risk factors for every trip request and categorises it as either a "no-risk workation" or a "high-risk workation".

In the unlikely event that any compliance risks arise during a risk-free workation, you receive:

  • Professional support for discussions with local authorities
  • Legal liability for incorrect or partially incorrect risk assessments
  • Financial liability covering the local corporate tax, employment tax and social security premiums for correct risk assessments

Please note that high-risk cases are not covered under the "no-risk workations" concept, but employers can still choose to approve them at their own discretion. In these cases, WorkFlex cannot take responsibility.

You can learn more about how no-risk workations work by downloading our whitepaper.
