CRA clarifying how employers must determine province of employment for remote workers

Since the pandemic started we’ve had employers (and advisors) reaching out for help in handling remote workers.  This usually starts around a benefits question (if the employee is in another province or country, how does emergency travel work?), and then gets more complicated quickly (taxation, safety, tech issues etc.).

This is still a very complicated issue and several professionals will need to be consulted before allowing employees to work abroad for anything more than a short time.  CRA has provided a bit of clarity in the article below.

If you need assistance with remote workers, please reach out and we can try to assist.

The Canadian Revenue Agency is providing guidance for employers to determine the province of employment for full-time employees who are working remotely.
