I live and work as a freelancer in country A. I am about to sign a contract with a company that has its offices in country B. They therefore insist on having the contract written in language B.
Both A and B are in the EU.
Would having the contract only written in language B be a problem for the various institutions (e.g., fiscal/tax) from my country A to whom I may have to show the contract in case a government audit comes? If the worst that can happen is that they make me pay for a translation that would be absolutely fine.
In other words, is there a law against having written contracts in other languages?
(Of course, I could make a bilingual contract, but this would really delay sealing this deal and I'm keen on getting this signed very soon, so doing a bilingual contract only comes into question if I definitely know I'll expose myself to significant legal risk by having it only in language B.)
