Does the firm care if in the current remote model you work for a McKinsey & Company US office but live physically outside of US for a couple of months? I know people move across states these days but what about outside of US to Canada or Mexico?

Past 20 working days a year outside the US it’s a different way of filing taxes, so yes, they absolutely will care

Yeah they do as you have to file taxes and declare income in both countries which is complicated. During peak of pandemic they were offering 2 months of work from elsewhere and supporting the tax filing in case by case basis. Not sure if they are still doing it.

Fair points A1 & M1, but do they have a way to keep track of employees and police this? (A close friend with another global consultancy has been in a different payroll country for almost a year and has been paying US taxes, and the firm doesn’t know)

They absolutely will track your computer location. Have had friends who had computers locked after the allowance.

Also, are you really suggesting lying to your employer and committing tax fraud?

So your question has a direct answer
- yes they care and when you submit timesheets you validate where you work. For many legal / tax reasons this needs to be true

Your pushback is the standard, what if you lie…
- this is not a scalable model and we benchmark travel from your home city. I would imagine hard to keep this up for a while. I knew about 10 people this past summer who reported where they worked different than actual location. That all accidentally revealed it at some point.

OP - they care and all others have pointed out the details. What they haven’t said is that this is easily a cause for termination. It is against the companies values and also falls into the tax fraud bucket of criminal offense.

If you want to work from somewhere else just ask for the transfer. B

Yeah it’s not if the firm cares, if it’s the taxing authorities care, and they certainly do.

You don’t want to piss off Uncle Sam’s tax man or any other version of that in another country

Not declaring it could have you up for tax fraud in one or both countries.
