Addressing incentive compensation compliance challenges.

Recognizing the risks of non-compliance

The risks of non-compliance for incentive compensation programs have become increasingly more complex and a frequent target of numerous taxing jurisdictions.

  • Multi-jurisdictional tax complexity—for example, what taxes need to bewithheld and what income needs to be reported for which period? Which tax treaties apply? To stay on top of these complex rules you need quick, accurate answers about reporting and withholding obligations in all the jurisdictions in which you have (or have had) mobile employees.
  • Processing challenges—this requires gathering data from multiple sources and facilitating execution by numerous stakeholders, all while providing timely settlement of the incentive and clear understanding of tax obligations and net pay to your employees.
  • Risks of non-compliance—such risks are not simply limited to tax, penalties and interest, they can extend to your company’s reputation and your employees’ confidence in the process.
