31st March - Tax Compliance in Economic Crisis
Insuring you are protecting your employees and your company in today’s environment of global deficit management.
It is no surprise that countries are suffering the aftermath of one of the most challenging economic times of recorded history. Virtually every country in the world is experiencing a deficit crisis and most are taking significant steps to tighten spending and raise revenue.
As a result, Expat compensation is being placed under the “Audit Microscope” as governments look for additional revenue. This places companies at significant risk to review their processes and procedures to insure full compliance with taxing authorities worldwide.
20 January 2011 - Re-Aligning your Localization Strategy

The concept of localization is about a lot more than just compensation and, when done correctly, can offer real and immediate opportunities for cost-savings.
