What is a Distributed Workforce?

A distributed workforce encompasses your business travelers, remote employees, assignees, and the various employees working outside a main office. Today, your workforce is more distributed than ever before – and managing the associated risk and compliance has created new challenges for organizations of all sizes. Evolving work from home policies require new levels of visibility and oversight as ‘home’ may be across state or country lines. For those without access to information, risk is growing exponentially – and for those with data at their fingertips, new opportunities for significant savings are developing. Topia enables organizations to effectively manage distributed workforces.

City and Local Taxes

The tax implications of distributed workforces that cross city, state, and country lines can be significant, and so could the savings. Many large cities apply a number of taxes based on where your employees are working – and with more people working from home outside of the city limits – you may be unintentionally overpaying taxes.

With Topia, you have the potential to eliminate significant tax overpayments and penalties, while avoiding lengthy and costly audits by providing high-accuracy and audit-ready data.

State-to-State Withholding

Employees that perform work in multiple states or countries open organizations up to payroll tax compliance issues. Every state and country set different thresholds for when payroll taxes must be withheld, making managing multi-jurisdiction withholding costly, complicated, and prone to errors.

Topia Compass delivers:

  • Best-in-class multi-state, multi-jurisdiction location record-keeping, and reporting
  • Automated and intelligent state-to-state withholding with high degrees of customization
  • Consumer-grade, intuitive interface for HR staff and employees
  • Full integration and continuity with Topia Compass’ permanent establishment and posted worker modules

Posted Workers

The European Union’s A1 filing compliance requirements and the updated 2020 Posted Workers Directive (PWD) have broad implications for companies operating in Europe. Complex tax, immigration, social security, travel, and health insurance considerations require multi-domain expertise. 

Learn how Topia can automate your A1 and Posted Workers Directive planning, data collection, and remove any compliance requirements roadblocks, so your employees can focus solely on executing on high-value tasks.

Permanent Establishment Risk

Business travelers and remote workers can inadvertently create Permanent Establishment (PE) conditions for a legal entity, making its corporate profits subject to taxes in the host country. 

Learn how Topia automatically identifies and manages tax exposures created by travel.
