New alliance relationship will help organizations manage international relocations and tax regulations involved with global mobility
KPMG LLP, the audit, tax and advisory services firm, today announced it has formed an alliance with Aires, a leading global relocation management company, to help clients enhance their visibility into the tax compliance and reporting process –so they can create an integrated mobility experience for employees and organizations.
Aires’ MobilityX platform provides a transparent view of all relocation activities for management and employees. As part of the alliance, KPMG’s Global Mobility Services practice has integrated its platform, KPMG LINK Work Force – which handles all data elements related to employee tax compliance – with MobilityX to create a shared platform where all stakeholders can share relevant information for the entire relocation and tax compliance process.
KPMG’s Global Mobility Services practice provides tax, technology and mobility administration services to help make managing a client’s global workforce easier and more efficient, enabling organizations to be more strategic.
“We live in a connected world where enhanced mobility allows employees to help their companies respond to emerging opportunities and innovate in new markets,” said Bob Mischler, Head of Global Mobility Services at KPMG LLP. “KPMG’s alliance with Aires is another example of the firm’s continuing investments in technology and relationships that will allow clients to facilitate these opportunities and navigate a complex tax environment.”
Through this new alliance, KPMG brings its technologies and capabilities together with those of Aires to provide three focused offerings:
Dual Initiation: By initiating projects within one system, organizations can decrease the burden of data entry and improve data accuracy, while minimizing authorization time.
Milestone Tracking: For greater context, a holistic view of an employee’s mobility journey can be shared across a single KPMG-Aires platform, including the status of both tax and mobility services.
Reporting: Data can be shared on a single dashboard to view total global mobility spend from a single data source and within a single report.
“Our customers expect, and deserve, to see the global mobility data of their workforces in real time through a ‘single pane of glass,’” said Aires Executive Vice President Joleen Lauffer. “Aires is excited and proud to partner with KPMG to deliver just that to our clients.”
