Seminar Details

Extensive knowledge in 4 modules

Posting employees abroad requires intensive and careful preparation by HR management and payroll accounting. In this context, the interface between these two areas is particularly important. In order to comply with the increased duty of care and to ensure a legally secure assignment, tax and social security basics are just as much a matter of necessity as the correct drafting of a posting contract and a posting directive. In addition, consideration must be given to the relevant entry and residence laws and the particularities of mapping an international payroll. For this purpose, we have divided the two-day attendance seminar into 4 modules and offer them online on 4 days. You can book the modules individually.

This practice-oriented seminar provides the basics of the tax law aspects of an international employee assignment. The terms and regulations of German tax law are discussed and the possibilities of using agreements for the avoidance of double taxation (DTA) are shown. The application of the 183-day rule and the definitions of economic employer and permanent establishment round off the seminar.

Modules IV:

  • Definitions of terms in tax law for foreign assignments
  • Tax residence / unlimited – limited tax liability in Germany
  • Structure of double taxation agreements (DTA)
  • Application of the 183-day rule
  • Definition of economic employer vs. civil law employer
  • Employment on business premises- tax implications for the employee
  • Tax equalisation vs. tax protection – what are the effects of these regulations?
  • Taxation of individual working days during foreign assignments

Seminar goal:

Module IV shows the participant the basics of the tax law implications during a foreign assignment. In this context, the terminology is defined and the application of the DTA is explained. The seminar provides a good insight into the facets of the tax implications of international employee assignments.
