If you’re thinking of dipping the toes of your US business into overseas territories this year make sure you send one of your team along to the APA Congress in May to understand the complexities of establishing and paying people abroad. Get it right and strategically it will add to the success of your venture. Get it wrong and you could face huge compliance fines and employment pay-outs.
And for those US businesses who have ventured into production capability from China now may be the time to decouple from reliance on that country for manufacturing. The hunt may be on to establish a presence in other overseas locations. Starting in another country may seem easy, but in country legislation, taxes and employment laws are completely different from those stateside.
The 37th American Payroll Associations Annual Congress is a showcase for America best payroll companies, but uniquely also a global platform for specialist payroll and HR suppliers who can help get you started. It is FMP Global’s 5th year attending this one-of-a-kind conference that brings payroll professionals together from all over the world. This year it is being held at Long Beach in California. It is a place to learn all about the tools to implement best payroll practices, operational efficiencies, and cost savings, and who can help.
There will be over 180 workshops, 100+ exhibitors and more than 2,000 attendees, so it is set to be a great event for everyone involved.
FMPs international payroll specialists will be at stand 624 to give help and advice to those payroll professionals there who have employees abroad or looking to start that process this year. We understand the challenges of global payroll in both mature and emerging international markets and can help you remain compliant with our international payroll solutions.
Look out for our ‘Global Take Off’ stand and our prize draw, where you can be in with a chance of winning a luxury leather travel bag. Great for when you visit your employees abroad! So, head over to our stand to enter and to grab some great FMP Global goodies as well.
International human resource management should form part of your expansion strategy, even before payroll.
We will also have our full-service HR support team MCN Global HR there at stand 67. If your organisation is exploring its options and preparing to expand abroad MCN should be consulted first, as choosing the right country can mean success or failure. Establishing a global HR function requires business critical levels of time, money and risk. Our HR outsourcing and HR shared services cut these costs dramatically by providing expert consultancy and support in one place – wherever your business is heading. Pop along to the MCN kiosk to find out more.
