Tax mobility program - Are you ready for the international challenge? | Brochure


“We are a large multinational company, sending employees on assignment from Luxembourg to Singapore: how can we deal with the personal taxes and social security issues of our employees?”

“We are a German company, seconding our people to a building site in Luxembourg for a few months and we have a permanent establishment there: do we have withholding tax obligations in Luxembourg?”
