The role will be based in Amsterdam, our EMEA headquarters.

The Role:

    • Partner cross-functionally to educate stakeholders and employees on the mobility and employment tax impacts of temporary or permanent employee relocations. You will have a particular focus in EMEA, but will also work globally as we grow.

    • Help build out our employee resource library relating to mobility tax matters, to enhance employee experience and understanding.
    • Manage, guide, and assist our external mobility tax services provider.
    • Work with recruiters, HR business partners, Tax, as well as the Talent Mobility team as we continuously review and design our approach to all areas of employee mobility.
    • Support with domestic employment tax matters that arise in our global locations, including compensation and benefit taxation, employment tax audits etc.

    • You have strong interpersonal skills, and an ability to build and grow relationships with people at all levels of the organization.

    • You are experienced in partnering effectively with the broad range of stakeholders who are impacted by employee mobility including talent mobility, talent acquisition, corporate tax, employment legal, stock admin, and payroll. You can help connect the dots and raise flags as they arise.
    • You can analyze and understand complex technical rules, while being able to translate these into practical guidance that is clear and concise to a non-tax person.
    • You have a deep understanding of cross-border tax considerations, including tax residency concepts/impacts, Tax Equalization for assignments, complexities around different types of compensation e.g. stock options, relocation benefits etc.
    • You have a robust understanding of individual income and employment tax principles across EU countries that are critical to employee mobility, including experience with Amsterdam (e.g. 30% ruling) , Spain (e.g. Special Tax Regime), UK, France, and Germany. Experience with APAC countries, including Singapore,  is also a plus.
    • You have experience working with US and California outbound and inbound individual income tax rules.
