With businesses being conducted across the countries, organisations mobilise their human capital across the borders. Mobility of the work-force is a significant task involving planning from various perspectives. Further, in addition to the planning, various compliances as prescribed under the different laws also need to be complied with. Issues normally faced by multinationals in human resource mobility, multi-national organisations usually come across the following challenges on assignment of their expatriate employees across the globe:-
What laws to be complied with in the host country and how such laws will be complied with?
What will be the cost to the company on account of employee mobilisation, how can such cost be optimised?
What will be the tax implications on account of expatriate assignment both to the companies as well as the expatriates?
Whether there will be any PE risks on employee assignment, including deciding on who will be the 'economic employer' and if yes, how these can be dealt with
Whether any exemptions under tax treaties be claimed?
Does economic employer have to comply with social security contributions?
