Remote working is booming. And that is not surprising, considering the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the digital possibilities of this century. Structuring work, setting up the technical infrastructure at home and maintaining the right work/life balance are major challenges within this new way of working.
Remote working from home is relatively simple when ‘home’ is in the same country as the company. It gets more complex, however, when an employee wants to work remotely abroad. Because work that can be done from home can also be done from a desk in Rome, Ibiza or the English countryside.
Sounds brilliant, right? Experiencing a new culture and being inspired by new surroundings, all while you are developing your talents and skills in the same job. However, remote working from abroad also brings challenges. For example, you may find yourself subject to different labour rights and obligations, and different social security, insurance and pension requirements. It might also have an effect on your net disposable income.
