FEM London Chapter Meeting 12/02/2019

Join us for the first FEM London Chapter Meeting of 2019 on the 12th February.

Managing Travel Risk and Cross-border Workers

The definition of what constitutes a ‘mobile population’ is still evolving and that the practice of ‘commuting’ between countries rather than just states or counties is growing. Assignments and business travel brings with it a number of risks: tax and immigration compliance, financial and reputational as well as personal security and well-being issues. Our meeting will explore some of these issues and offer practical advice. 

Attendees are welcome to submit questions in advance by emailing: claire.tennantscull@centaurmedia.com
