Global Mobility and HR Tax

Global Mobility and HR Tax

Global mobility – the free and fluid movement and relocation of workforces across international borders- is a salient feature of our globalized world today, including in the MENA region. Be it MNE groups relocating talent across geographies or companies hiring from overseas, businesses across the region look to place the best talent where most needed. On the flip side, however, this can also leave your business with withholding obligations as well as with tax liabilities and filing requirements for both you as employer and your employees. A robust global mobility HR strategy is therefore essential for your business to meet all compliances and mitigate risks, and to be an attractive employer for talent. This is a complex area which needs expertise across borders and sectors.
