Outten & Golden understands that the goal in negotiating expatriate benefits is to ensure that the needs of the expatriate and his or her family are met and all special circumstances considered. With this in mind we draft and negotiate the benefits portions of the expatriate, secondment, and assignment agreements on behalf of our clients. When an international tax specialist is required, we have professionals available to ensure that our clients receive the best advice.
Employees who work outside of their home country are often provided with expatriate, secondment, and assignment agreements that include a multitude of benefits related to their assignments abroad. These benefits usually include relocation-related benefits for the employee and his or her family; health, cost of living, and tax benefits that are provided to the employee and his or her family during the assignment; and repatriation benefits that cover the employee when moving back home.
