Team meeting

International Human Resources

Through collaboration, the expatriate tax specialists of Baker Tilly and the employee benefits and human resources specialists at Baker Tilly provide a full-service offering to international businesses.

For an international business, an exchange of labor can be very valuable, but also expensive and an extreme administrative burden.

When dealing with globally mobile employees, there are numerous questions to be answered from both a compliance as well as risk management perspective. A global assignment does not only affect the employee’s tax position but also one’s remuneration package, social security position, and pension planning. An employer needs to know which payroll will remunerate the employee, whether there is an obligation for the company to report the salary to the authorities, withhold taxes, and make a social security contribution, or if is this done by the employee themselves.

The global mobility team regularly assists businesses and individuals with the following scenarios:

  • International assignments or secondments
  • Cross-border commuters
