A global economy requires a global business strategy, which invariably involves the need to move your most important asset, your people, swiftly and easily across borders.

But today there’s much more to a deployment strategy than securing work visas and residency permits.  With the world's markets constantly evolving, organisations need to continually look at how they move talent for future business success.  This means taking a strategic approach to immigration being prepared for pending immigration changes across multiple locations, and influencing change by having your voice heard by policymakers.

As government tax and immigration departments increasingly share information, it makes sense to work with a global provider who can help you plan for future moves and provide effective integrated immigration and tax advice.
