This one-day workshop focuses on the employer responsibility for individual tax reporting and organizational taxation risk and compliance issues related to the employment of US expatriates and Third Country Nationals. If you work in human resources, finance, or payroll, you need to master the many intricacies involved when employing individuals in these categories. Failure to understand the complex US Government and host country regulations related to this kind of employment can put your organization at risk. This highly participatory course, led by taxation and mobility experts, provides guiding principles, practical information, tools, a resource manual, and “how to” advice on managing U.S. expatriate and host country taxation issues.

Who Should Attend
