When you employ or hire someone, there are often taxes to be paid by
both parties. If those parties are in different countries, the taxes
can get a little confusing. They certainly need to be considered. (I
expect they have been, and the people involved know what they're
doing, I just think it odd not to mention it anywhere, so thought I'd
double check.)
