Global Mobility Services

Strategically Manage Your Mobile Workforce across the Globe

For many organizations, growth depends on global expansion, but international assignments can present challenges that are vastly different from domestic relocations. Even short term business trips can create potential tax and/or social security issues in other countries, territories or states. Whether you are considering an acquisition, relocation of a facility, starting operations in a new territory, or looking to streamline your processes and procedures, Crowe Horwath can help you. Our comprehensive and current knowledge of employment and income tax rules for mobile employees can support your effectiveness with managing global tax compliance. Linking mobility matters with your overall corporate tax strategy is equally important. Effective planning and preparation for each assignment along with implementing policies and processes that align with your strategy will help minimize company risk and enhance the overall global assignment experience. Your globally mobile employees are critical to your organization's expansion -- tax issues should not interfere with their success.

Coordinating and managing the cross-border tax and social security details for your cross-border employees can be complex and time-consuming. Where countries have multiple internal tax jurisdictions, activities in each area can have significant impact on a company's tax burden. Current knowledge of tax, immigration, and employment issues, along with effective planning and preparation, are essential to minimizing your company's overall tax burden and remaining compliant. Permanent establishment and corporate tax matters must also be addressed. Our senior advisors have significant global experience and understand how to deliver our services effectively with empathy for the stress associated with unfamiliar tax regimes.
