Tax Planning for a Move Abroad

Relocation TaxationThis article is reprinted from Taxolutions with permission from Rowland, Johnson & Company, P.A.

Many Americans are considering moving abroad to take advantage of professional and personal opportunities in a global economy. But as a U.S. citizen living in a foreign country, your tax situation may become more complex, especially because the U.S. requires all of its citizens and green card holders living abroad to continue to file returns in the U.S., and pay taxes on their worldwide income. Depending on the source and level of your income, however, you may be entitled to a number of tax breaks, chiefly designed to keep you from being taxed doubly by your adopted country, as well as the United States. Whether you actually come out ahead on taxes will depend on which country you work in and its tax rates, along with your individual financial and employment situations.

Anyone involved in the relocation industry knows that there is a new seat at the relocation table: procurement.  This has been quite a shift for relocation professionals and human resources managers alike because, historically, relocation has been strictly a function of HR.  In recent years, however, cost-cutting measures have caused more companies to charge procurement with sourcing the relocation vendor, which has changed the nature of the business and the relationship between key relocation players (third parties, HR, transferees, finance and so on).  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Most companies remain focused on implementing strategic HR practices that will benefit transferees and the company as a whole. We all need to work together to build the best relocation team and subsequent program.

How to Manage Inconsistent Exceptions to Your Relocation Policy

How to Manage Relocation Policy ExceptionsLately, we have been hearing a lot about exceptions. After several years of an unpredictable relocation environment, it makes sense that relocation managers would be struggling to create policies that have the right level of benefits to accommodate transferees in uncertain times. As such, exceptions surrounding temporary living and other benefits around housing are common.
