Here you can find series of international assignment taxation folios presented by PwC worldwide. The folios contain information on the taxation of international assignees in more than 50 countries. Providing a general background with respect to the income, social security and other tax implications of cross-border transfers, these folios are a "must read" for any individual contemplating or embarking on an international assignment. In addition to the "must know" tax information, our folios explore other issues of great relevance to expatriate employees, including matters of employment and immigration law, tax and other planning opportunities, and key legislative information. International assignees need information to make crucial decisions regarding their assignments. Our folios help assignees avoid tax problems both before they arrive in their assigned country and after they return home.
