Global Mobility Services

Our experts resolve and handle complex tax and legal issues relating to the assignment of employees abroad.

We arrange the framework of conditions in a way that minimizes tax and legal risks and the costs of foreign assignments, both for the company and for the employees. Secure conditions are a prerequisite for convincing employees to accept expatriate posts or other foreign assignments.

Consulting from a single source with local experts, worldwide
Our tax experts and the attorneys of RWT Anwaltskanzlei (law firm) work closely together to create comprehensive, optimal solutions. You can benefit from a central contact person in this context.

To resolve all tax and legal issues abroad, we consult local experts from our Crowe Global network, who are also available as local advisors and contacts.

In particular, we advise German companies (assignment of employees abroad), foreign companies (assignment of employees in Germany), and expatriates (in Germany and abroad) on the following topics:

  • the assignment of employees to foreign offices, subsidiaries or in the context of foreign projects,
  • international business trips,
  • the employment of locals on site.
