On May 9, Fuad Saba, FGMK Specialty Tax Practice partner, and Gabrielle Buckley, Vedder Price shareholder, gave a presentation on “Tax and Legal Pitfalls in Global Mobility” at the Chicago Tax Club. Their presentation addressed the principal tax and legal challenges arising from companies that engage in cross-border business activities and the impact it can have on employees who are required to travel on business.
These foreign business assignments may span years, or may require more frequent short-term assignments. The actions of these employees outside their “home country” can have important tax and legal consequences to both the employer and the employees, in the home country as well as the foreign country of assignment.
If your company’s employees travel on business outside the US, and you have questions about the tax consequences to your company or your employees, please contact Fuad Saba.
