Global Reward Taxation Services

Managing the tax and compliance complexities of global rewards.

Tax planning and compliance are critical components of global reward programs, helping to ensure optimum outcomes for both employers and employees, while minimizing tax cost and risk.

BDO provides consultative and compliance-based U.S. and global employment tax and global reward tax services to clients in all industries and of all sizes, from local start-ups to multinational corporations.


For businesses operating internationally, payroll deadlines, regulatory issues, compliance requirements, and agency intricacies are complex and broad in scope. With professionals on-ground in more than 160 countries, we offer payroll tax services including payroll review, recommendation and implementation; assignment benefit and compensation gathering; and compensation schedules to reconcile U.S. and foreign payrolls.

Optimizing employment tax strategies requires an in-depth understanding of the complexities inherent with employment tax laws at all levels. Our professionals work with businesses to identify and implement strategies to help reduce current and future employment tax burden and exposures; take advantage of federal, state and local opportunities to recover overpayments and maximize credit opportunities; and manage the unique complexities of remote and flexible work arrangements.

Executive compensation is regulated by complex tax rules. We work with taxable and tax-exempt entities to provide tax consulting for nonqualified deferred compensation plans, stock options and other equity-based plans, golden parachute (280G) analysis, 162(m) compliance, fringe benefits, transfer of partnership interests and review for IRC 409A compliance.
