Managing expectations

Every new assignment or employee who starts working outside of their country of origin brings new questions. Not every situation is the same and for expatriate/HR managers it is often difficult to keep up with all the visa and tax obligations that need to be fulfilled. There are tax implications in the home and host country for both employer and the employee to be considered, social security positions to be determined and health insurance coverage of the employee during his work abroad to be addressed.
As it is most important for the business that an employee is on site as soon as possible, there is often pressure on the expat / HR manager to get everything organized within a short period of time. What helps is managing expectations at the start of a new assignment or, better still, when the intention to work abroad first arises. This way, everyone knows upfront when an employee can start to work and what tax and social security implications you as an employer and the employee need to take into account. This will minimise risks, improve compliance and keep costs efficient.
We at Hillbrook have the experience to help you to manage these expectations, by assessing the new assignment or cross border employment and giving you a short and practical overview of the visa, tax and social security consequences in both home and host country. This can be done via a telephone call or an e-mail. Please contact Lyke Apontoweil for further information.
