Today our network ― over 1,800 professionals from KPMG member firms worldwide ― provides services for more than 60,000 mobile employees/assignees in more than 800 organizations.
For many global organizations, the pressure to compete means increasing the size and scope of their global workforce. Managing the demands involved in growing a global workforce involves reporting, withholding and regulatory compliance issues in each country in which your employees and organization operate. This can use up significant resources.
Our IES practice can help you with your global mobility program.
We have the people, experience and technology to help companies, regardless of their stage of global development. Our practice provides a proactive service delivery model covering broad compliance, advisory and administration services to support organizations’ worldwide businesses and assignees. We can provide a single source for addressing these potential international assignment business issues:

KPMG's IES professionals prepare individually personalized tax returns for our firms' clients' international assignees. Our services cover the compliance cycle: from pre-departure counseling, income tax return preparation and tax reconciliations, to correspondence with tax authorities.
But our objective is to provide value beyond the preparation of tax returns.
By working closely with our member firms' clients, we provide advisory services that are designed to help both the company and the international assignee derive long-term tax savings. As part of our compliance process, we also offer payroll advisory services to help companies comply with withholding and reporting requirements.
Our global network of international social security professionals can help employers and individuals comply with complex international social security rules. These rules may vary significantly and can be complex at both international and domestic levels.
To excel in the global marketplace, organizations need an international assignment program that supports their overall business strategies and contributes to the bottom line. Our Global Mobility Advisory Services professionals advise organizations on the management of their international assignment programs competitively.
Our team conducts surveys of organizations' international assignment programs to benchmark global assignment policies against comparable competitor groups. Our firms' clients use this information to establish their position within an appropriate peer group, taking account of relevant objectives to improve or realign their policies, processes and procedures.
Our team has developed the Global Assignment Policies and Practices (GAPP) Survey. The GAPP Survey is one of the first online surveys of global assignment issues that provide participants with immediate feedback to benchmark their policies and evaluate new trends. There is no cost to participate in the survey and results are available immediately upon completion. Participants can also request customized survey reports. Please register at www.kpmglink.com and take the survey today.
