Germany Extends Agreements with Belgium and Luxembourg on Taxation of Cross-Border Workers During COVID-19 Pandemic — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

The German Ministry of Finance has published agreements signed on 22 March 2022 that extend until 30 June 2022 the agreements with Belgium and Luxembourg concerning the taxation of cross-border (frontier) workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The agreements essentially provide that in cases where a cross-border worker is required to work from home due to COVID-19, the days spent working from home will be treated as working days in the Contracting State in which the worker would normally be working, if not for COVID-19. Given that the measures of the respective countries in response to COVID-19 have been largely lifted, it is noted that the agreements will not be extended further beyond 30 June 2022.
