You forgot to account electric and internet bills. In some countries may be cheaper but there are other countries are not cheap. Remote work uses employee's resources. It's mostly like a win-win for a company in terms of cutting costs. Some are already underpaid with long hours of work yet if you got a pay cut to get to work from home is actually a loss for the employee.

Everyone loves to make it look ideal but put in prospect the issues some people might have at home when working. I think the employee should decide himself based on his or her own needs. We switched our work entirely from home, and even for our billing processes, we decided to enable a recurring payment system with the help of probill.com/. It may seem impossible to control your team from home, but you can easily create a thriving environment with good planning and dedication. Try adding an implementation that can automate some of your company's functions and feel the difference.
