ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The rise of the global economy has brought a surge in the number of companies that have gone "multinational". This has meant greater opportunities for employers and worker alike. It has also created numerous challenges for companies who administer payrolls for employees who are far-flung, around the world. A new webinar from BNA on October 4, Managing International Payrolls: What You Need to Know to Ensure Compliance, offered by Bill Delabar, Director with Deloitte Tax LLP's Global Employer Services, will explain the many pitfalls of managing international payroll.
In 90 minutes, Bill Delabar will discuss what employers need to do to ensure they remain in compliance with the complicated regulations by detailing:
- Reportable vs. non-reportable payments to overseas employees
- US expatriate (US citizen or green card holder) tax withholding obligations
- US tax withholding obligations for non-US citizen employees
- Social security tax issues
- Use of totalization agreements
- International assignees and US Federal and State unemployment tax obligations
- US tax withholding needed on extraordinary payments (bonuses, stock options, etc.)
- US payroll forms that must be updated
- Recent IRS activity in this area
- Reporting payments to nonresidents of the US who are not employees of the US company
Attendees to this webinar will also receive 1.0 CPE or 1.5 HRCI credits.
