Mazars Global Mobility Alert - October 2013

Welcome to the second issue of our Global Mobility Alert.

This month you can read about how we can help manage the immigration status and the significant penalties that can apply to people who work without the appropriate permission. We also discuss the Canadian perspective on the planning needed to avoid unwelcome audits and unexpected tax costs for the growing issues related to short-term international assignments. Finally, we bring you news from Luxembourg of a relaxation of the conditions applying to the new expatriate regime that is intended to encourage the hiring of highly qualified and specialised employees from abroad.
