Payroll and Reporting

A small population of expatriate employees can represent a relatively higher proportion of time on administering expatriate payroll. Expatriate payroll demand some specific strategies and tailor-made systems to handle;

  • accurate delivery of compensation, benefits, and other policy-driven expatriate allowances in one or more currencies and
  • compliant reporting and tax payments in one or more countries concurrently

The effective interaction of the home and host payroll is therefore critical for accurate payroll reporting, tax payments, and accurate net pay delivery to the expatriate.

Companies may be exposed to substantial risk and sizable penalties if reporting of salaries and benefits are not in accordance with the appropriate authority.

Our experience and knowledge of best practices will help you to operate an expatriate payroll for short- and long-term assignments. Our services will include;
