According to the Austrian ministry of finance, in the last few years more and more inspections have been carried out on staff working on construction sites in Austria in order to uncover illegal workers and pseudo-displacements. Our German colleagues inform us that lately more and more company cars belonging to craft business are checked at the border and in areas near the border in order to establish where they are going and where the occupants are going to work. This naturally leads to increased fines from the financial and immigration authorities in Austria.
In this context we would like to remark that working in a country which is not one’s own country requires increased attention. Only by advice to a local ones in the relevant country or with a tax adviser familiar with the subject will it become clear if work is being carried out under a work contract, within the framework of a work posting or with one’s own company and if therefore an obligation arises to pay tax, social security, minimum wages or to join the Chamber of Commerce or not.
Nothing will stay the same! Great Britain has decided to leave the EU, a decision which sent a shock wave throughout the world.
And now the really important and decisive questions arise:
- What is going to happen next?
- What consequences will Brexit have for the economy, not only in Britain but also in Europe?
- What consequences will it have for the vast number of foreigners working in Britain, including many professional football players?
- When and how fast will the exit happen?
