QUESTION: "Is Fl employer req to register in Ga to pay Ga taxes on ee's?"
ANSWER: Yes. Here is how this works. The law requires any "employing unit" (i.e. even in multi state situations such as you have described) to register with the Georgia Department of Labor when such an employer has any employees performing services (working) in Georgia. In terms of the specific mechanics, this means completing a certain form immediately following the payment of the first such payroll based on Georgia work: Application for GDOL Tax Account or Status Change - DOL 1A. Once the quarter in which the last employee was paid is completed, the employer's obligation to Georgia terminates in this regard.
I truly hope all works out for you.

QUESTION: "Is the Fl contractor required to register as a foreign entity since he is working as a subcontractor?"
ANSWER: If the Florida contractor, regardless of the fact that he is working as a subcontractor, has employees (meaning he cuts their payroll), then the answer is yes, no way around that and still comply with the law. If that is not the case, though, then the same does not apply. Hope that makes sense...if not please just give me a shout.
