Our Global Mobility Services “GMS” function provides comprehensive support to organisations with a globally mobile workforce, helping them to navigate the complexities and identify any associated opportunities. 

Our services

Together with our global network within GMS we provide our clients with a range of services in over 150 countries, including:
  • Tax Compliance – our primary focus is ensuring that both employers and employees remain compliant with tax and social security regulations in all the jurisdictions in which they operate.  Whilst country specific, this typically includes monthly payroll compliance and support with the preparation and filing of income tax returns
  • Tax Advisory – we provide a range of advisory services throughout the assignment lifecycle, whether it be domestic advice for employees coming to Ireland, or coordinating international advice for those moving overseas. 
  • Short Term Business Visitors “STBVs” – globally, there is an increased focus in respect of business traveller compliance, and using both KPMG’s business traveller technology solution and our global network, we help our clients to identify the income tax, social security, immigration and Permanent Establishment “PE” risks associated with business travellers, and in real-time.   
  • Policy and Process – whilst moving employees across borders can be complex, having a robust framework in place from the outset provides a great foundation.  We help our clients develop their processes and policies to ensure that they move employees in an efficient, consistent and compliant manner.    
  • Senior Executives – our Private Client team can provide additional support to high net worth individuals, such as tax planning for non-domiciled individuals, guidance in respect of remittances and international pension planning.  
  • Immigration – our Immigration specialists ensure that employees and their families have the necessary permission to live and work in Ireland.  For further information, please visit our immigration website.            
  • Global Rewards Services - Globalisation, increasing governmental regulations, rapid technological advances and growing competition are transforming business around the world. The combination of these factors makes designing and administering effective and cost-efficient compensation and benefit plans increasingly complex—yet critically vital to a company’s ability to successfully compete and thrive in the global marketplace.
