The past year has forced massive changes in virtually all aspects of our lives, and employment-related taxes is an area that we can expect the authorities to leverage off the changes that were forced on us during 2020. While this can result in significant changes to the legislation, this shake-up will most probably lead to improvements in our payroll world.
