Approaches to handling tax balancing calculations in managing global mobility costs

The decision to accept an international assignment by an employee should not be primarily driven by the tax regime of that particular jurisdiction. Hence, a tax balancing policy aims to remove the tax factor from the decision making process and ensures that the employee is not at a disadvantage, tax-wise, when accepting the assignment. Additionally, it also promotes fairness amongst assignees, reduces compliance risks and provides greater flexibility for employers to deploy their employees to any location around the world, whilst managing the overall assignment costs.
 

Objectives

This course aims to enhance the organisation's understanding of tax balancing policies and calculations when managing the overall costs of an international assignment.

Agenda/topics covered?
  • Goals and Objectives of Tax Balancing
