Managing an expatriate workforce has become increasingly complex and time consuming. The challenge faced by most MNCs today in moving people across borders is how to ensure tax compliance when relocating employees to another tax jurisdiction. Besides having to grapple with the issue of attracting, motivating and retaining talents in a highly competitive business environment, MNCs have to consider how to minimize the tax risks and costs of employment. New compliance obligations for employers means that this is now an area which warrants increasing attention.
