For multinational businesses and companies with global reach, addressing international tax matters and ensuring that employees maintain tax compliance isn’t always easy. No matter where you do business, tax codes are becoming increasingly complex. This makes compliance and reporting difficult, even for well-established companies with employees located all over the world.
Aprio understands the tax-related challenges that multinational companies face as well as the difficulties that global mobility can pose. That’s why we offer comprehensive income tax planning and reporting services for businesses that have international tax exposure.

At Aprio, we understand that the circumstances surrounding each company and employee may be very different. That’s why we have extensive conversations with each new client to assess each independent situation and adapt our services to meet your needs.
In many cases, our advisors will start by working closely with your company to plan for upcoming international assignments. We’ll work with your team and each international employee to address each stakeholder’s priorities as they relate to employee relocation. Based on the priorities we identify, we can then begin to work with specialized members of your team to address pressing issues.
We’ll advise on and implement international human resources policies and highlight a variety of compliance and reporting issues, including individual and company income tax exposure. Our advisory team will also provide guidance related to creating policies for relocation benefits and tax reimbursements. In many cases, our advisors work with clients’ payroll departments to ensure that they maintain accurate U.S.-based reporting for salaries and bonuses. We’ll also advise on reporting for assignment allowances, relocation benefits, and third-party reimbursements.
Our team can streamline tax reporting for your international employees even further. Our advisors also prepare U.S. income tax returns for international workers while simultaneously coordinating their tax positions with their home or host country tax advisors. We’ll coordinate any additional services within the Aprio network to keep employees’ income tax burden to a minimum.
Our knowledgeable advisors understand that income tax planning can be particularly challenging for both companies with cross-border employees and international workers. That’s why we also assist with planning for social security tax, including applying the appropriate social security agreements designed to minimize exposure to double taxation. Our advisors can even prepare tax settlement calculations to reconcile tax burdens for employees and employers, giving both your company and your employees peace of mind.
Our global mobility tax services don’t end when your employees move to an international location. Our experienced advisors also provide guidance for repatriation or localization of employees. With our dedicated advisory team by your side, you can feel confident that you’re handling all essential components of employee relocation correctly, whether your employees are leaving or returning to the U.S.
When you partner with Aprio, both your company and your employees will experience benefits. Naturally, employees that accept international assignments can have a widespread effect on any organization. However, our team strives to mitigate any negative effects while providing guidance with compliance and minimizing exposure.
We accomplish these goals by identifying and involving key stakeholders to facilitate accurate reporting, budgeting, and compliance for internationally relocated employees. Our tax compliance services minimize risk exposure that your company might face, and our seamless coordination with home and host advisors keeps income and social security tax exposure as low as possible.
Our experienced advisors excel at working with both your corporate team and your individual employees. From serving as outside tax advisors to employees to guiding corporate policies for your company, Aprio ensures that both your company and your employees benefit from our services.
