AROUND THE WORLDWIDE ERC ®

Collective Wisdom
To help keep you in the know on many of the topics or questions that are top of mind for
Worldwide ERC® corporate/HR members, here are some of the things currently being
discussed in their dedicated community group at worldwideerc.org/community.

TAX PROTECTION OPTION

Does anyone provide tax protection (rather than tax
equalization) as part of their expat program? If yes, how
has this impacted which other expat benefits your firm
provides? We're doing a refresh of our expat benefit
program at the moment, and I would love to connect
with anyone whose firm uses tax protection rather
than tax equalization to understand how or if this has
influenced the rest of your expat benefits!

A1 FILINGS

Does anyone have a process in
place for filing A1 certificates for
business travelers within the EEA
and Switzerland? We are trying to
implement a process for managing
A1 filings for EU employees traveling
to other EEA member states or
Switzerland and are curious if you may
have a process in place. If so:
*	 Is the process being managed by
global mobility, HR, travel?
*	 Does your local payroll provider
handle the actual filings of the A1s,
or do you outsource this to your
tax provider/third party?

HOMESALE ASSISTANCE

Our company offers an AV-GBO option for new hires at
director level and above. What type of buyout option
do you have for executive-level new hires? If you are
not offering any homesale assistance for new hires,
what impact, if any, have you seen with performance,
retention, engagement?

L-1 INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

Question regarding companies and immigration
linked to L-1 international transfers:
1.	When do you start the perm process for
these L-1 employees? 
a.	1 year
b.	3 years
c.	Other
2.	Do you look at a shared-cost process for L-1
employees versus full company cost? 
a.	Shared (%)
b.	Company

POLICY STARTUPS

A newbie here: We are just starting up with our expat and mobility
policies and plans, so I'm curious to find out how other companies
deal with two things:
1.	How/what tool do you use for tracking employees'
whereabouts? We are a distributed company, and people
travel constantly, so asking for them to submit info is
annoying. We are looking at getting some sort of tool that
would be easy to use and ideally implement with our HR
system of choice. 
2.	How do you deal with employment law compliance if you
need to employ people outside of where you have payrolls
set up?
