Immigration and global mobility

Organisations are working internationally more than ever, and cross-border employment is the norm. Are your global mobility processes optimised and compliant?

Your challenges

The prevalence of doing business in other countries means your people are working on assignments abroad more than ever. While sharing expertise across borders can be invaluable to your organisation, it brings challenges and complexities that could impact your regulatory compliance and your total cost as an employer.

Are you applying the correct labour law and social security legislation to your mobile workforce? Are your employment, social security and immigration documents aligned and compliant in each country?

How we can help

Our PwC Legal team - whose Network extends across more than 90 countries - works closely with our PwC global mobility tax specialists to bring you a complete global mobility service, from Strategy through Execution. We provide consulting, planning and compliance services to organisations that deploy staff across borders, including payroll assistance for employees working in Belgium.

We’ll advise you on mobility strategy, expat policy and the social security impact and obligations resulting from cross-border work. We help structure international employment from a labour law point of view and offer global solutions for managing visa requirements and work permits.

We simplify your global mobility processes and provide you with the peace of mind that your people working internationally are within the regulations, both at home and abroad.

Posted Workers Directive

The Revised EU Posted Workers Directive (PWD) was recently implemented in Belgium and in other Member States. What does this mean in practice and what are the new obligations for employers posting staff to Belgium? 

Check out our flyer to learn more about the consequences of the Directive. Find out how PwC Legal can help you implement these new regulations within your international assignment policies, and support you with strategic advice and assistance in all global mobility-related labour law issues.

Free Brexit assessment tool

As 31 December approaches and the Brexit transition period comes to an end, you should be aware of what this implies for UK citizens currently employed in Belgium.

From an immigration perspective, it implies that UK nationals who are not protected by the withdrawal agreement will be treated the same way as other third-country nationals from 1 January 2021.

To evaluate if you’re ready for the post-transition period, we invite you to try out our free assessment tool. The tool allows you to evaluate the progress you’ve made and identify what further measures are required to prepare your business and employees for the upcoming changes from an immigration perspective.
