Policy Development and Assignment Planning

Working with our network of firms, we help you define the processes, terms and conditions for transferring employees. We assist with developing the benefit and relocation packages for these employees, while adhering to the relevant legislation. We also ensure that basic guidelines are maintained to achieve a unified company policy. In developing the assignment policy, we ensure it aligns with strategic goals to maximise returns and reduce the costs involved in the assignment process.

Cost Projections

We help evaluate international assignment costs based on specific mobility policies,  employees' individual assignment criteria, and estimated tax costs by all applicable tax authorities. We will also closely analyse and monitor both necessary and discretionary expenditures, reconciling estimated costs against actual expenditures to create a realistic budget for future assignments. 

Tax Compliance

We help companies ensure employment tax compliance is achieved globally. We provide cross-border employment tax compliance services, including tax briefings and consultations, tax return preparation, tax planning and advisory.
