With the increase in demand for the “employee experience”, more and more businesses are looking
to offer employees a secondment opportunity either overseas or within New Zealand. There is a lot
to organise if an employee is to spend time working overseas, even if technology allows them to
continue to be a part of a team in New Zealand. One thing that is often overlooked in the planning
process is taxation and the planning opportunities that are available. These opportunities take into
account things like, where is tax to be paid; is there a risk of double taxation; what kind of tax and what
amount will be paid by the employee; what are the obligations for the employer, what structures can be
put in place to mitigate taxation and maximise benefits for employees.
This course will consider the tax implications for employees and employers when planning for
international assignments or staff relocations within New Zealand. It will focus on practical examples and
work through the various rules, options and opportunities available for packaging an “employee experience”.
