International taxation compliance
Tax Planning Services
Whether you are working on a contract assignment overseas or in your home country, some things never change. Tax will be due where money is earned. However, ensuring your compliance with the relevant tax legislation is a complex process - especially when multiple countries and tax authorities are involved.
For example, you need to therefore be aware of the issues of tax compliance, including:
- tax residency and the 183 day rule,
- local tax legislation in the working country (see our international tax guides for more information)
- offshore expat regulations and restrictions,
- issues of interactions between domicile rules and the length of contract/assignment
- opportunities to ensure that your international earnings are managed in a tax efficient way.
...to name just a few.
When moving to a new country of work, it is not enough to continue operating as you do at home. The same regulations rarely apply and unfortunately ignorance of local tax issues is not a defence when dealing with tax authorities. It is therefore essential that you and your agency understand the issues involved and that you speak to an expert about your position to confirm your international tax compliance.
