Five Grant Thornton (GT) member firms have launched a new technology offering for global mobility services.
This application will help HR and international travel managers better manage the regulatory, tax and compliance issues that arise from a mobile workforce.
When employees accept an international assignment or are permanently transferred out of their home country for business reasons, their employer is required to provide support for ensuring continued tax compliance in addition to being responsible for the company’s obligations.
Our international mobility specialists are then called upon to inform organizations of the scope of tax, social security, benefits and human resource requirements they need to consider in order to ensure compliance and maximize their investments.
The new platform, developed jointly by GT member firms in the United States, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands as well as the Canadian member firms in Toronto and Montréal, equips clients by providing them with real-time monitoring, analyses and information on their international mobility programs (e.g. schedules, deadlines, follow-ups, dashboards, etc.).
Martin Caron, Senior Manager, Global Mobility Services at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton says: “This new tool allows organizations with a mobile employee population and experts in the GT network to share information in real time, allowing them to better ensure compliance during international assignments.”
Caron adds: “For example, an employer can easily track the status of tax returns for employees deployed to China, the United States or Canada.”
Workers abroad also have access to the application and can use it, among other things, to file their tax documents. Each of the parties involved benefits from the application according to their role in the program, in a high-performance, easy-to-use and fully secure virtual environment.
