TAX107 : Avoiding Common Mistakes and Managing Potential Tax Risks associated with Your Company’s Expatriates

7.00 CPE Hours (Others)
Classroom


Programme Objective

Singapore is one of the popular jurisdictions in Asia for the MNCs to set up their HQs. In addition, an increasing number of local companies expand their operations to overseas. Thus, most companies with cross-border operations would have to hire expatriates.

Experience shows that managing potential tax risks associated with expatriates can often be a key challenge faced by the HR and Talent Management (“TM”) professionals.  They might be experts in HR only but not tax.  How can they discharge their obligations satisfactorily and thereby, helping their companies to comply with the related tax requirement?  If something goes wrong, what can they do?  It is submitted that HR and TM professionals must be fully aware of the potential tax issues before “moving the expatriates from one country to another or sending them home for good.” They should also be in a better position to work with their in-house tax professionals and/or external tax advisors to achieve a tax-optimal outcome on their companies’ international assignment policies for expatriates.

This is why in this 1-day workshop, participants have the opportunity to understand some common key expatriate tax issues in detail so that they can apply what they learn from the workshop and review the current international assignment policies when they are back to the office. The use of practical case studies and interactive discussions between the workshop facilitator and the participants would form a major component in this workshop to ensure that the discussion and key learning points remain practical and relevant.
 

Programme Outline

  • Consider tax and other relevant issues relating to mobile expatriates (i.e. expatriates who undertake frequent business travel and short-term assignments in overseas countries)

  • Consider tax and other relevant issues relating to structuring expatriates’ remuneration package to achieve tax-optimisation for both the concerned expatriate and the company.

  • Discuss tax and other relevant issues relating to terminating expatriates’ employment.

 

Training Methodology
Group Case Studies and Discussion Format.
