Globalization presents plenty of opportunities for companies in the logistics and transport sector. Although working across borders is part of their core business, at the same time it does entail challenges. Employees are enjoying an increasingly high degree of mobility and are not limited to work within their own country’s borders. Compliance with legislation and regulations in different countries can be an impediment when it comes to business opportunities.
In practice, it is common to see employees (temporarily) working abroad without any formal arrangements having been put in place. Employers do not always have a clear picture of the risks involved if they fail to fulfil national and international regulations. The absence of an effective policy and process certainly do not go towards minimizing the risks. Are you up to date with local legislation and regulations and is your mobility policy sound?
PwC will be happy to support you when it comes to relocating employees to and from abroad in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We will assist with devising and implementing policy for international mobility and cross-border employment. By carrying out a quick scan, for instance, we will chart the consequences of international labour for employer and employee.
Throughout the world we can assist you and your staff when it comes to preparing income tax returns and other compliance obligations. Our services are not only geared towards the fiscal aspects of cross-border work, but also focus on issues regarding immigration, social security, pension and strategy.
