Global HR Consulting

We help implement a tax equalization (TEQ) policy.

■ TEQ policy is absolutely necessary for a company sending employees abroad to its subsidiary. If there is no good TEQ policy to cover foreign assignments and the tax related issues, the employee would note that his/her salary with effective purchasing power is depleted, in comparison to staying at home. Our tax team is very experienced for TEQ related consultations.

■ Recently, there are more numbers of U.S. subsidiaries of Japanese corporations sending their employees to headquarter in Japan. The company needs to withhold a hypothetical tax from the assignee when the Japan assignment starts, and pay taxes on world-wide income. We provide consulting services and compliance for the expatriate income tax and payroll.
