THE 2016 SEMINAR PROGRAMME
This seminar covered tax issues that affect expatriates living and working in the UK, and highlighted issues that expatriates need to know about in order to keep their finances in check. Topics covered included Federal and State Tax Return Preparation and Filing, FBAR filing (reports of foreign bank and financial accounts) and bringing expats into IRS compliance.
This seminar was hosted by Roland Sabates, a tax attorney and Director of Operations for H&R Block’s Expat Tax Services business. Roland has a wealth of experience in international tax preparation and helping clients navigate through their unique tax situations that exist as a US expat. His area of specialisation is resolving international tax issues for individuals and small business owners, such as FBAR and foreign information reporting, IRS voluntary disclosure programme participation, and US taxation of foreign trusts and retirement arrangements.

Building a Strategic Vision of Global Mobility for Your Organisation
This session explored that challenge from a new paradigm; how would the focus and priorities of a mobility leader change if that role was truly in the C-suite? As much as any enterprise process, effective cross-border deployment relies on working across functional silos. Mobility leaders orchestrate across HR specialties in talent, reward and business HR as well as Finance, Accounting, Payroll and Tax, all in support of business strategy. The session aimed to develop an enterprise approach that considers all the priorities and stakeholders in this complex and strategically critical endeavour. Presented by Deloitte LLP.

Andy Piacentini explored some key emerging themes from research within the RES Forum and their membership of 750 mobility professionals. The presentation focussed on policy, workforce planning, talent and the future of the mobility function. Hosted by Andy Piacentini, Standard Life & RES Forum.
