If you’re reading this article then you probably already realise that the world of working has changed dramatically in the last 24 months. The Great Resignation and other similar trends all stem from the principle that individuals want greater freedom and flexibility. One of the most efficient ways to achieve this is through remote working.
When the Internet first came into existence, few could have accurately predicted the impact it would have on work. Today, just as business is carried out globally, so too is employment. A company can be based in Malta whilst employing or engaging with remote workers in India, Australia, the US, and all other parts of the globe.
The possibility and acceptance of remote working in today’s economies have made work more efficient than ever before. The goal is no longer to fill up eight hours of work, but rather to complete a task effectively within as little time as possible. This change in mentality, coupled with increased automation and changing priorities, is the reason why an estimated 80% of jobs in 2030 did not exist as recently as 2017.
If you’re a freelancer or remote worker you need to think like a business
The global pandemic has given rise to an exceptional number of new self-employed persons. These can be described using a number of popular terms, including freelancers and digital nomads. Their roles include software development, data analysis, consultancy, influencing, and a whole host of other primarily online-based activities.
If you are one such individual, then it is vital that you realise that you are running a fully-fledged business. You might not have employees or an office, however, you do have rights and obligations that apply to all businesses. One of these obligations is, of course, paying taxes.
What’s the most efficient way to pay less tax?
Depending on where you reside, you may or may not have heard of Malta’s attractive tax rate for qualifying business entities.
