Brexit: The Potential Tax & Legal Consequences for International Business
This issue reflects the many advantages of working with Alliott Group’s Global Mobility Services Group, specifically the availability of local experts worldwide who are highly experienced in working with international employers and in providing joined-up solutions which are multidisciplinary in their approach.
Brexit is now only seven months away – there are many challenges ahead, and not just for the UK. Alliott Group members are working together across countries and across service teams to ensure clients are prepared and can take advantage.
To this end, UK members Sherrards Solicitors and Smith Cooper explain the legal and tax implications presented by Brexit to UK and EU companies and their assignees.
We are also delighted to report that our UK global mobility team has been strengthened by Sherrards Solicitors’ recent launch of their immigration unit under the leadership of Laura Butcher. With Austria recently named as the ‘world’s most liveable city’, Vienna accounting member Rothenbuchner & Partner explain the key global mobility considerations for global employers sending staff on assignments to Austria. Our final feature from New York and Montreal members Farkouh Furman & Faccio and Hardy Normand & Associés looks at issues likely to be encountered by employers when their employees cross the border into Canada. Reflecting the dynamic market we serve, a three month assignment opportunity (September to November) has arisen in our Brussels office for a junior tax professional to gain valuable experience working for our international clients. Contact me for more information about this exciting talent development opportunity. Alliott Group’s brand visibility is growing - we recently submitted a RFP for a €400 million multinational engineering company we met at the Amsterdam Global Mobility Conference in March – winning this project could potentially require the involvement of Alliott Group member firms in multiple countries. Sponsorship of the FEM Global Mobility EMEA Summit in London in November (see back cover) will ensure that even more international employers become familiar with the Alliott Group brand!
