Maintaining internal equity and local competitiveness is essential to attracting and retaining the right employees. Sending employees on international assignment to a foreign country requires the balancing of many variables. It is therefore important to understand and assess employees overall tax burden faced by the expatriate.
In a "balance sheet" approach, the intent is to guarantee the equivalent Net pay to the employee abroad as he or she enjoys at home. To enable equalization of the net income, we first have to deduct the employee's hypothetical social security and tax amounts. Having a good knowledge of the individual taxation and mandatory social security contributions will help the employer to measure the real value of your employee's salary - demonstrating how much will cover taxes and social security, and how much will be left over for the employee.
