In the News: The Economist – Why Europe is a great place for Digital Nomads

The Economist

Thank you to Avantika Chilkoti and all the team at The Economist for featuring The Work From Anywhere Team in their recent Roam Work series article entitled ‘Why Europe is a Great Place for Digital Nomads’.

In this article, which appeared in both the digital and print editions, Avantika talks about how Europe is a great place for digital nomads.

Did you know, for example, that 8 of the top 10 countries for nomads are in Europe?

Here is a link to the article which you can read by registering for free on The Economist website.

Why Europe is a Great Place for Digital Nomads by Avantika Chilkoti

“The biggest barrier to the nomadic lifestyle is red tape. Totting up one’s tax bill, for instance, is complex for anyone who hops between jurisdictions. But new businesses are trying to help. During the pandemic John Lee started Work From Anywhere Team, a marketplace for tax consultants around the world. He argues that nomads like him need an “Amazon for tax advice”. The pandemic has created an awareness, says Michael Huertas of pwc, an accountancy firm, that “tax being drawn along national lines is really archaic.”
