Due to the proliferation of cross-border transactions, more businesses today are rapidly moving towards globalization. Globalization increases the need for international assignment of employees, which generally raises issues concerning various compensation structures and tax regimes. These various structures and regimes may lead to an increased tax burden for both the employer and the employee. The employee should be aware of the potential exposure to double taxation, while the employer should be aware of the tax burdens imposed upon, and the benefits available to it and its employees.
Tax planning for such issues must deal with tax regimes of various countries, different employment rules and different employment contractual conditions. Enterprises are generally unable to deal with such complex issues entirely satisfactorily.
