If your organization sends employees abroad, you need to understand what a shadow payroll is and how it works. The basic concept is relatively simple, and shadow payrolls are great for lowering employer and employee risks.

During this webinar, Katie Davies will discuss: 

  • The concept of shadow payrolls and why they’re critical to compliant global operations 
  • The basics of tax equalization, tax protection and hypothetical taxes 
  • Common shadow-payroll scenarios using popular host countries as examples
