HMRC is increasingly interested in the tax affairs and compliance issues which are relevant for employers and their inward and outward bound expatriate employees. Payroll managers dealing with movements of such employees face an increasingly rigorous compliance environment as HMRC identifies risk of tax leakage and non-compliance in the increasingly complex world of mobile workers. As movement of labour on the international markets becomes an ever more commonplace event this course provides an opportunity for those dealing with these issues to review their knowledge of the practical tax matters to be dealt with on the PAYE affairs of such employees.
