For global mobility programs looking to invest and grow their workforce in Brazil, it’s critical for professionals to be educated about the total mobility costs and compliance issues surrounding Brazil.

Sending expats to such a highly complex, high tax, high regulatory environment that is evolving at a rapid pace, requires extra attention to ensure success.

Global Mobility owners must focus on the strategic issues of global deployment (not just the tactical). They need to work hand-in-hand with their executive management to present total costs to collectively determine the right levels of investment.

Managing the monumental tax costs that impact on the bottom line and maintaining compliance are critical to the success of all assignments.
