EU citizens are free to move, live and work in any EU member state. This free movement of people was created with the aim to promote a mobile workforce across the EU.
The UK Government has announced that it wants to terminate the arrangement of free movement as part of the Brexit process, which will have a significant impact on how multi-national companies operate with their staff in the EU.
Rules surrounding wage taxation and social security are dependent on each EU member state, subject to common rules, such as EU social security regulations. It will be important to follow developments in this area to understand the impact of the end of free movement on multi-national employers and their employees.
