• BDO Compensation Tax Withholding Solution

Helping you avoid risk and consider opportunities when designing cross-border incentive compensation

In an increasingly globalized world, executive compensation decisions must be made with global mobility in mind. The taxation of incentive and equity-based compensation may vary greatly depending on the type of award, the structure of the organization, the tax attributes of the recipient, as well as their location. Companies who fail to accurately withhold taxes on incentive compensation subject themselves to a time-consuming and expensive correction process.
