PwC shareTax helps mitigate tax risk for globally mobile employees

Effective global tax compliance for share plans


As organizations have an increasingly globally mobile workforce it’s vital that the tax obligations around their global share plans are met in each jurisdiction.

It is hardly surprising that many companies struggle to streamline their processes and ensure full compliance when there are so many competing factors to consider. For example:

  • Differing country requirements;
  • Tightening rules and regulations around tax and social security on equity awards;
  • Penalties for non-compliance.

An online tool from PwC – shareTax – can quickly identify the tax and social security liabilities on equity awards for an organization's globally mobile population.
