Business Travellers - Compliance, Managing Risk & Sharing War Stories

We all have international business travellers that need to travel compliantly and this issue has never been more relevant with geopolitical uncertainty, data sharing between authorities and the BEPS agenda. Businesses need to consider the immigration and tax compliance complexities that come with this type of employee mobility and partner with their Global Mobility teams, to ensure systems and processes are in place to manage the risks and requirements. Join us to hear organisations share their practical tips and their war stories with this type of employee mobility.

While traditionally Monadelphous Expatriates have followed rotational rosters into various countries including Papua New Guinea and China, more recently business operations have been extended to Mongolia, New Zealand and USA. Compliance around immigration and employment law are not possible without the overlay of both corporate and employee taxation requirements and so a close working relationship with Libby Storm and the Monadelphous Tax team has been vital for success.
