We take the time to understand what's important to you and to build our delivery model around you and your business. Our agile approach can be applied to the most complex projects

We understand that not everyone is at the same point on their technological journey. Our solutions are scalable and enable personal relationships – they don't replace them.

You'll always receive insight that manages your risk and costs while remaining solution-focused, commercial, and practical.

Your business and mobile employees can receive support in these areas:

Strategic assignment-planning, advice, and support

From advice on tax-efficient assignment planning through to wider policy development and review, we ensure that your mobility strategy supports your wider business needs and your employee value proposition. You can also receive support on budgeting, cost management, and review of your return on investment.

Tax and payroll compliance services

You can request home and host-tax briefings, tax compliance support, and shadow/modified payroll services in over 130 locations across our network.

Non-resident directors

Your executive and non-executive/non-resident directors can benefit from specialist guidance, including residency and social security planning, treatment of directors' fees and other remuneration arrangements, and payroll.

Social security-planning and compliance services

Advice is available on policy-and-process implementation, as well as identifying key risk areas and the potential for cost reduction. Our services include application and reporting for modified NIC schemes, Certificate of Coverage/A1 applications and Posted Worker advice, and notifications in Europe.

Short-term business travellers, commuters and remote workers

The ability for employees to work effectively away from the office has increased the potential for remote international postings, adding another layer of complexity. Gap analysis can help you optimise all aspects of your current operational model: from process design for managing the population, and tracking, reporting and analysis through PinPoint calendar technology.


US executive and private client services

US executives working in your business have unique challenges and opportunities. They can be supported as private clients through our team of dual-qualified advisers.

International pension tax arrangements for employers, executives and trustees

Pension provision is a significant part of the overall reward proposition. We can support you with cross-border taxation of retirement plans, including establishment of plans, taxation of contributions, pension plan distributions and global compliance.
