Budget 2015 and Non-Resident Employers

The 2015 federal budget will ease the administrative burden for non-resident employers who employ non-resident employees on short-term assignments in Canada.  Even though these employee are exempt from Canadian income tax under a tax treaty between Canada and the employee’s home country, the employer still has to withhold Canadian tax from wages unless the employee obtains a waiver from the Canada Revenue Agency.  Starting in 2016, some employees will not have to go through the waiver application process.  For more information, click here.
