FEM Belgium Chapter Meeting 22/09/16
Please join us for the FEM Belgium Chapter Meeting on 22nd September.
We would like to invite you to the next Belgium Chapter Meeting. Hosted by BDO, in cooperation with Santa Fe Relocation Services, Johnson & Johnson, BNP Paribas and UCB, the meeting will consist of three parts: two presentations, led by industry experts on current topics affecting Global Mobility and Business Travel, as well as an interactive Q&A session with our expert panel.
Bridging the gap between Business leaders’ expectations and global mobility’s reality.
What are the key actions and initiatives to ensure that global mobility teams remain valuable to their organisations?
Drawing from the key data points and themes of Santa Fe’s 2016 Global Mobility Survey (who collaborated with BDO on the Leaders’ input into main Survey), this is an opportunity for attendees to discuss and explore the views of both ‘C’ Suite business leaders and global mobility professionals about the future of global mobility as we move towards 2020.
Members of the FEM steering committee (Sigrid Nauwelaerts, Regional Director of Global Mobility EMEA and Asia at Johnson & Johnson, Véronique De Vooght, Manager advisory and operations – Global assignment steering center at BNP Paribas and Daphne Meganck, associate director International Mobility at UCB), together with John Rason, Santa Fe’s Global Head of Consulting will debate the findings and they will share practical examples of how global mobility is creating value for their organisation. John and the steering committee will also be joined by Peter Wuyts, Partner, International Tax Services at BDO who will provide his views from his client experiences and perspective from both a global mobility and compliance perspective.
Brexit and Business Travellers and Short Term Assignments
Why Business Travellers and Short Term Assignments can be a risky business.
In this session, BDO will explore the general principles and the increased focus of the tax authorities on the Business Travellers & Short Term Assignments in The Netherlands, UK and Belgium. They will also dispel the myth of the “183-day rule” and briefly touch on the potential corporate tax implications that Business Travellers & Short Term Assignments can have for an organisation. Given, that we are now in unchartered waters with UK’s Referendum result to exit the European Union, we expect quite an interesting debate that will open into broader discussion.

John, Peter and Sigrid, Véronique and Daphne will take questions on any global mobility/talent related subject!
