Hi there,

I am a former lawyer turned traveler. I help Digital Nomads with their international tax issues, international corporate structure, offshore bank accounts and all things legal around their business. My professional account @wanderers.wealth focuses on sharing my knowledge and experience in international tax law.

If I'm not working than I am out adventuring, exploring and travelling around the world. You can watch my journey on my main account @kathymcpaul. During the last year I've been to over 30 countries on every continent. In the last couple of months I've slowed down and enjoyed more the slow pace traveller lifestyle. I'm particularly in love with tropical destinations as I love the ocean, beaches, palm trees and surfing.

Top tools to succeed as a professional Digital Nomad

After having lived the Digital Nomad lifestyle for over a year I decided to write a blog post for anyone that is currently starting out their own Digital Nomad journey or for anyone that is in need of some helpful tools to increase their remote work productivity. That’s why I’ve put together a list of tools that will help you stay on track, boost your productivity and ultimately help you become a well-established, confident and professional Digital Nomad. I use this tool on a daily basis and it makes my life so much easier by suggesting me the right times in one click instead of having to google different time zones and calculating myself a potential meeting time. Another benefit of working out of a coworking space is that you’ll get to meet other Digital Nomads and benefit from events that the coworking space organizes.

One of the coolest and most interesting sites I‘ve ever visited.🙌 . Tikal, was the city and ceremonial centre of ancient Maya civilization.🇬🇹 . What blew my mind is how these massive temples are now hidden underneath hills because nature took over them.⛰ . It also takes archeologists years to dig up these temples and the one shown in the photo is only halfway uncovered. The back of it still looks like a completely normal hill in the forest.🤯 . Spent a whole day exploring Tikal and learning about the Mayan culture. Extremely fascinating. And it still blows my mind that no one really knows what happened to the Mayans of Tikal after having built such a massive city.😮 . 📷 @jonny.melon

Things You Need To Know About International Tax Law

Our goal is to make you aware of how ‘international tax law’ really works and hopefully this article will open up your mind about the fact that really there is no such thing as ‘international tax law’ but rather lots of different countries that are trying to design the most competitive tax laws to attract individuals and companies into their economy whilst still making sure that everyone is contributing their fair share to the government. The tax rates that apply in your home country can be completely different to the tax rates in your new destination country. Even when you hear that 100 OECD countries have signed an agreement – those agreements will still have to go through the national legislative system to become laws in that country and oftentimes they will have to be adapted and changed before they will be accepted into the country’s system. Or simply because a country is offering residency permits in exchange for some economic investment doesn’t mean that obtaining that country’s residency will benefit you in the long run.

COVID-19🦠 and its tax implications DID YOU KNOW... 💡...that the repatriation of employees during the COVID-19 crisis also impacts taxation, social security and payrolls? 💡...interruptions of an assignment overseas may change the tax residency of ghe employee. 💡...as a consequence payroll taxes may need to be altered and the indidividual (YOU) may need to understand how your tax position and filing obligations have been impacted by this crisis. #expat #taxobligations #taximplications #coronavirus #governmentcontrol #internationalwork #remotework #entrepreneur #travelpreneur #globalcitizen #repatriation #internationalefforts #digitalnomad #digitalnomads #returninghome #entrepreneurship #internationaltaxation

Legal Things To Consider Before Becoming A Digital Nomad

Most importantly, you want to make sure that you get paid for your work and for this you should include a payment clause within the contract that states the payments terms, when payment is due, the payment methods available, the amount due and who to pay it to. Most of the times you probably don’t even realise that your employer has tax obligations and has to pay Social Security Contributions, Workers Compensation, Tax Withholding, Medical Care and Pension contributions. A corporation usually pays its own income corporate taxes which are separate from your personal income tax that you have to pay on your salary. Given the fact that you are about to embark on your Digital Nomad journey you might also want to consider incorporating your company in a lower tax jurisdiction as opposed to your home country.

Good moooorning🤗☀️ . Just wanted to jump on here and let you know that I‘ve got enough travel pictures (that I haven‘t ever shared before) to keep us going till the end of the year😅😩 . Can anyone guess where this one was taken?? . ...It was in Cuba 🇨🇺, Bay of Pigs. Never thought I‘d see such a beautiful ocean there. . I‘m definitely going to start digging into my archives to share some more memories for you. Let me know if you‘re interested in one country in particular!! . Sending lots of positive energy to everyone.🌈☀️💛 . 📷 @jonny.melon

Signs That A Digital Nomad Should Set Up A Corporation

However, hiring people means that you’ll have much more responsibilities which include administrative things such as making sure that you get your employees tax identification number and social security number, making sure that you comply with guidelines and that you withhold correct amounts from every pay check for taxing obligations. This means, that if you run your business through a sole proprietorship, all your income will be taxed at your personal income tax rate. Tax rates are oftentimes lower than personal income tax rates which means you have to give less to the government if you run your business through a corporation. Also, in many countries if you run your business as a sole proprietorship you have to pay self-employment taxes which are likely to include your own Social Security contributions and potentially Medical Care taxes on all of the business’ income.

El Aguacero, Chiapas, Mexico 🇲🇽 . One of the most stunning waterfalls I have visited to date. . When all of this is over I will start chasing waterfalls again.☺️ .

Things I want you to know about International Tax Law: . I did a video about this the other week and it is up on my IGTV but in case you missed it here’s a quick recap for you 😊 . ➡️International tax law keeps constantly changing. . With every new government there’s usually new tax incentives that become law. But there’s also a general trend around europe to lower corporate tax rates. It’s forever changing. . ➡️Not everything is regulated. . That’s why we have prosecutors, lawyers and judges that interpret the law. So don’t be surprised if your exact situation isnmt covered by the law. . ➡️Endorcing tax laws is different than writing them. . Just because there’s an attractive looking tax incentive program out there doesn’t mean that it is easy to make it work in practice. . ➡️Tax laws differ from country to country. . There’s no such thing as international tax law really. There’s many different national tax systems and they can be very different from each other. . ➡️International tax laws don’t necessarily make economic sense. . Simply because a country has attractive tax rates doesn’t mean it will make economic sense for you to incorporate or move to that country. . #internationaltax #taxlaw #taxseason #tax #taxes_igers #taxestaxestaxes #accounting #incorporation #company #offshore #digitalnomad #expat #remotework #freelancer
