Vilnius Grand Resort Hotel
Each speaker will review topics related to the legal regulation of his/her country relevant to the Lithuanian business enterprises posting workers to the EU countries:
1. Legal regulation of the employees posted (i.e. from Lithuanian companies) to your country/requirements for formalisation:
1.1. Requirements for minimal/maximum salary, working/rest time/vacations, application of collective agreements, working safety, etc.
1.2. Procedural things: are there any must-take steps, e.g. noticing some institutions of the foreign employees.
1.3. Payment of daily allowances and their taxation; are daily allowances recognised as a part of minimal salary? Payment of tax on personal income, Social Security payments, from the salary? Who is responsible for payment – employer or employee? When should the tax be paid? What amounts (maybe some different percent depending on sum of salary)? What formalities and when should be gone through for this purpose?
1.4. Does it matter: Short-term vs long-term posting period of employees: what is deemed to be short/long? What consequences are cause by that (employment formalities, taxation, else?).
1.5. Practical insights: control institutions attitude and practices, issues to be checked/risks avoided, etc.
1.6. Can company posting employees by service agreement cause a presence of the permanent establishment in your country? What are main criteria for that? What is the outcome of having PE in your country? What taxes and when should be paid in such case? Is VAT registration necessary? Is there a possibility to deduct expenses spent, e.g., in Lithuania, but related with earnings sourced in your country, when calculating taxable profits in your country?
2.1. Any differences in regulation of posted employees by service agreement and employees sent on temporary staffing/agency employment model?
2.2. Licensing of Lithuanian company: in order to provide staffing services? Restrictions of using staffing model?
2.3. Payment of tax on personal income, Social Security payments, from the salary of posted on temporary staffing model?
2.4. Can company posting on temporary agency model employees cause a presence of the permanent establishment in your country? What are main criteria for that?
3. Main requirements of posting employees from Lithuanian companies – NON EU citizens?
4. New changes in local laws according to new amendments on Directive of posting of workers.
