This 60 minute webcast by PwC's Human Resource Services practice compares and contrasts the tax treatment of these expenses or allowances between Canada and common expat locations such as the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Australia. It also provides guidance for companies regarding the most tax effective approach when planning for these assignments.
