Remote Work Assistant

The digital solution for mobile working abroad

Making new work possible. Avoid risks.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and work forever. More and more employees are about to turn into digital nomads, as new arrangements allow them to work flexibly from home or other locations. As part of this trend, the demand for flexible cross-border work arrangements is continuously increasing. Employers must meet this demand in order to attract new talents and avoid unwanted attrition. In the context of New Work, remote work from abroad is on the rise, often combined with holidays (“workation” or “bleisure”). However, depending on the work location a number of tax and legal risks must be mitigated for both the employer as for the employees.

Risk classification will be made in real time for up to 40 different countries.

2 - 3 minutes
to assess a remote work request

Our solution creates a fully automated decision-making process, minimising manual efforts for assessments and ongoing monitoring. As a result, you can free up capacity in your HR/Tax teams for more complex work.

Remote work abroad – it's that easy

With our comprehensive work management solution, you minimise manual efforts through our automated process and keep an eye on all (tax) legal risks.



We jointly assess your requirements for remote work from abroad. Optionally, we can also support you in clarifying questions of principle, drafting a guideline, transferring it to a company or service agreement and operationalising it (checklists, communication, etc.).



We set up an individual tenant of the Remote Work Assistant for your company - either as a lean managed service ("RWA Flex") or as a turnkey solution including process management ("RWA Enterprise").


Ongoing usage

Employees enter their remote work request into the tool and will be guided through a conditional questionnaire.


Documentation and Monitoring

All assessments will be recorded and made available in dashboards to ensure comprehensive monitoring and reporting capabilities at any given time.
