Working from abroad is one of the many benefits of remote work. But it also has its challenges. Tax rules, residency requirements, and eligibility requirements for health insurance, statutory programs, and other social benefits may be impacted when working from abroad.
For this reason, all employees hired through a Deel Employer of Record may only work from abroad for up to 45 business days per calendar year.
Working from abroad is defined as working from any location outside the country in which your contract with a Deel Employer of Record is based and settled.
This policy will ensure compliance with local laws and regulations in both your primary working location and your work-from-abroad destination.
[ACCORDION] What if I want to work from abroad for more than 45 business days?
If you want to work from abroad for more than 45 business days (70 calendar days) you may seek work authorization in your destination country and request that your employer hire you through Deel in that country. This will ensure that the correct taxes and social contributions are withheld and remitted from your pay.
[ACCORDION] What if my employer has a different work from abroad policy?
If your employer has a more restrictive work from abroad policy, you must comply with that policy. If your employer has a less restrictive work from abroad policy, you must comply with the Deel policy.
[ACCORDION] Do i maintain my benefits, PTO, and other entitlements while working from abroad?
Yes. If you work from abroad for 45 business days or less, your benefits, PTO and other entitlements will not be affected.
