The ability to transfer or harmonise benefits across different countries has become increasingly important for both employers and employees.
As employees become more internationally mobile, having the right structures in place to provide suitable benefits can be vital in recruiting and retaining high-quality talent, as well as harmonising benefits across your business and securing tax advantages where possible.
Transferring benefits across different jurisdictions is, however, a complex area requiring in-depth pensions, benefits and tax knowledge.
We have expertise across the range of international pension plans, from Qualified Recognised Overseas Pension Schemes to Offshore Employee Benefit Trusts.
We have extensive experience of providing international benefits and pensions advice to both UK-based companies with overseas employees and non-UK parent companies sending executives to the UK.
With the increasing complexity and changing regulations of the pensions landscape, we use our expertise to deliver creative solutions to individual pensions issues.
We are a member of Nexia International, an established global network of independent accounting and consulting firms spanning over 100 countries.
We act for a number of overseas banks operating in the UK, as well as many other multinational companies.
We are associates of both the Pensions Management and Chartered Insurance Institutes and members of the Personal Finance Society.
