The report, covering 29 countries, has been compiled by members of Alliott Group's Global Mobility Services Group and is targeted at the needs of senior executives working for internationally focused SME businesses. The guide serves as a reference tool on the interrelated tax, immigration and employment law issues that will be encountered by an internationally mobile workforce.

The difference between success and failure

In today’s competitive global business world, employee mobility is crucial. Many governments have been creative in developing ‘impatriate’ schemes that aim to attract senior executives and world class leaders to live and work in their countries. However, to expand abroad successfully, companies need to be able to assign the right people to the right locations at the right time. A full appreciation of the correct tax and legal procedures in different countries will ensure companies and individuals save time and money and avoid the debilitating penalties that make the difference between an international assignment’s success or failure.
