Alliott Group to Play Key Role in Leading European Conference on Global Mobility

Among the speakers and sponsors at the Amsterdam Global Mobility Conference will be members of Alliott Group, a leading international alliance of independent accounting, tax and law firms. ABV ADVOGADOS is the Alliott Group member firm in Portugal. The conference provides a forum for HR and global mobility managers facing the challenges presented by expatriate management in today’s international business world.

XX March 2018, London – Alliott Group will be the Lead Sponsor of the 2018 Amsterdam Global Mobility Conference which takes place in The Netherlands on 22 March. Employees from ABV ADVOGADOS will join with their Alliott Group international colleagues to play a leadership role in the conference.

Organised by the Forum for Expatriate Management, the conference will be hosted at the Hotel Okura and will bring together over 160 global mobility professionals, industry experts and HR specialists from 15 countries. Over the course of the one-day event, delegates from internationally focused businesses will discuss current trends in the challenging field of expatriate management and meet with leading suppliers to the sector, such as [your firm] who can help them to meet these challenges.

Alliott Group members from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Portugal, the UK, Guernsey, Malta, Greece and the United States have been involved in shaping the conference’s tax and legal content. In addition to leading a seminar at the conference, Alliott Group members will be available on exhibition stand B2 to speak to representatives from some of the world’s best-known companies and middle market enterprises about how they can assist them to set up and manage the interrelated tax, accounting and legal aspects of their global mobility programmes more effectively.

Luc Lamy, Chair of Alliott Group’s Global Mobility Services Group comments: "The use of short term assignments is rising as global companies try to optimize their international HR supply chains. However, there are numerous tax and legal compliance processes that need to be coordinated into the organisation’s assignment policy and then adhered to by not only the global mobility/HR team, but also other operations teams, specialist departments and the expatriates themselves. Too often, we see in-house professionals getting into a tangle with the various compliance issues. By working together, the member firms of Alliott Group are able to provide an international one-stop- shop outsourcing service to multi-market focused companies and a viable alternative to the large international professional services firms. We can remove the burden of compliance and help organisations to capitalise on the opportunities in today’s global market place.”

With many changes occurring on the legal, tax and immigration landscape within and outside Europe, short-term assignees and business travellers have started to come onto the radar of tax and immigration authorities internationally on a more regular basis. Alliott Group’s member experts will be sharing their insights during the conference into how easy it is to become non-compliant when assignees are moving across borders, often at short notice, even if only for business travel.

António Paula Varela adds: "Generally speaking, global employers will have fewer issues with short- term assignments, but nasty surprises can and do occur. Problems will always arise due to business visa limitations being exceeded, but we want to emphasise during the conference that there is much more to consider than immigration and visa rules and 183 day rules! Membership of Alliott Group enables ABV ADVOGADOS to provide joined-up, cost efficient professional advisory services to our international clients in over 60 countries worldwide."
