International mobility

International migration of highly skilled workers is on the rise, in several forms and for diverse reasons. Some employees intend to settle permanently in the host country, others migrate on a temporary basis either for short periods of a few days (business trips), for longer periods extending to several months or years or for short periods at frequent intervals. Some employees are transferred within multinational companies (intra-company transferees), others within the framework of an international project. A final category are those employees who work in two, most often neighbouring countries at the same time (so-called split employment).

We advise on the whole range of issues related to international mobility, including:

  • providing assistance with all administrative formalities: work permits, visas and residence permits, Limosa declarations, A1 forms;
  • labour law, tax and social security issues;
  • comparative calculations and tax and social security optimization;
  • drafting assignment letters, salary split agreements and expatriate policies;
  • terminating  assignments.
