International Human Capital Services for Today’s Global and Mobile Workforce
We’re living in highly complex and fast paced times. Especially for business owners operating in multiple countries. Technology has leveled the playing field for small and midsized companies to compete globally – in both industry and talent. As a result, we see more clients seeking international human capital services to help them with the various complexities they may be facing.
Increased and ever changing tax compliance has become troublesome to both companies and employees who work across borders. Our international human capital services address these concerns. We are proactive with informing you about regulatory changes and navigating risk. Noncompliance has become a universal issue, usually not because of negligence, but because many people don’t know the expectations attached with having an international workforce or taking on an expatriate assignment. We’re here to help bring clarity to the confusion.
While large multinational corporations have been taking advantage of global mobility services for years, the opportunity for smaller organizations to have a global presence has been growing rapidly. Demand for our international human capital services has been expanding and we’ve been responding. We have a deep understanding of multinational issues and U.S. tax structures, coupled with a strong relationship with international advisors as part of our BDO Alliance. This perfectly positions us to help small and midsized businesses put together a strategic plan with best practices as well as handle any urgent issues that may arise.
An Increased Level of Confidence
At Mercadien, we work with our clients – both companies and individuals – to lower their tax burden. We address all matters, from compliance to other ancillary issues that may emerge. For U.S. individuals who are working outside the U.S. or non-U.S. individuals who are working in the U.S., it’s imperative to talk about expectations and legal obligations. It’s also important to talk about the stake of the employer and be very clear about each of your responsibilities. We are constantly anticipating any changes with our industry insight and expertise.
Many companies who come to us need to develop a corporate policy. As a business owner, you’re not just worried about income taxes. You must also focus on social tax issues, split payroll, and retirement plans. Wage and hour administration and compliance have become increasingly complex. We help employers provide insight on proper classification of workers, immigration challenges, and retirement plan contributions.
We always keep budgets in mind when working with our business clients so they can see what an employee working globally will cost, as well as how that individual’s presence impacts the company’s filing status.
Whether you are an individual or a company, we will help you minimize your tax risk. Our goal is to provide you with the confidence you need to get the most out of your global experience.
