In brief

Baker McKenzie’s EMEA Tax Practice Group presented an overview on “Employee Benefits”, the second in a series of short webinars to keep tax professionals abreast of recent developments in these less than certain times on 9 June 2020.


The taxation of workers and employees is an area subject to complex forces through the Covid-19 era.

In this session, we cover tax issues that companies dependent on gig economy workers are facing during lockdowns and will have to manage afterwards. We also discuss how Covid-19 has reshaped and will affect international mobility, with employees potentially working in different locations than originally planned.

In addition, we explore how the Covid-19 crisis may change the way employees are paid, receiving shares instead of cash and, finally, we explore how corporate tax deductions and share plans may become a new area of interest for tax authorities to increase revenues and pay for economic stimulus packages.
