Product Description

Shadow Payrolls Are Necessary—and Challenging


Shadow payrolls are a confusing and complex issue, but if you have U.S. employees working overseas you need to know about them. Shadow payrolls are records that “shadow” or mirror the compensation and benefits received by American workers in their host country for the purpose of calculating, reporting, and remitting taxes. While the shadow reporting seems simple, it’s not.

Join Dayna Reum to learn why U.S. employers find shadow payrolls so necessary and why it’s worth your time to figure out if your organization needs one—and how to put one in place. Reum will teach you how to determine what to calculate, what to report, what to remit— and when. Equipped with nearly two decades of experience in the payroll field, Reum will also help you become fluent in topics such as split pay, hypothetical tax, tax equalization, and home-versus-host-country payroll.

After attending this information-packed audio presentation, you will know how to implement and maintain a shadow record, understand what it must include, and know how to account for tax consequences. You will also learn Internal Revenue Service requirements and tax policy as they relate to expatriate payroll reporting. If you have U.S. workers overseas, or think you might in the near future, this class is for you.
