Global Equity Tax Withholding Solution

Equity tax withholding

In an increasingly globalized world, compensation decisions must be made with global mobility in mind. The taxation of incentive and equity based compensation may vary greatly depending on the type of award, the structure of the organization, the tax attributes of the recipient and their location.

By utilizing transaction data and cross-border travel information, EquityPro provides calculations of tax withholdings for an organization’s mobile employees. Through the automated process, global tax estimates are provided in real-time using data from over 140 jurisdictions around the world. Payroll is calculated using marginal, maximum rates but can be calculated based on individual year-to-date earnings.

Companies who fail to accurately withhold taxes on incentive compensation subject themselves to a time-consuming and expensive correction process. BDO’s Global Equity Team helps companies avoid costly fines and design cost-effective global compensation plans. BDO’s global network is comprised of a dedicated team of tax professionals.

BDO has formed a strategic relationship with Equus Software to provide and maintain global tax logic for the software leader’s EquityPro solution launching in 2019.
