International employment:
in company training for HR professionals

Introduction of the training

Is your company employing staff abroad? Have expatriates been assigned to work in Belgium? Did you hire a foreign national to work in Belgium or in another country?


Your HR department will soon be facing the challenges of dealing with cross border employment issues, including taxation, social security and employment law. Appropriate training may be helpful for your HR professionals to help them to better understand these matters and to be able to effectively deal with them. Trainings on topics relating to international employment typically have the following weaknesses:


  • the training location is not suitable for you
  • the cost of the training program is excessive
  • the training dates are inconvenient
  • the topics, which are covered, do not sufficiently meet your needs


All of these issues are resolved by the ‘in company’ training program of ICHIBAN Consult. The trainer simply comes to your company, at reasonable cost, to teach those subjects which are of particular interest to you. Presentation materials and extensive written course materials are available both in Dutch and in English.


The programme

The program is discussed with you in advance and is tailor made to your needs. It may cover various topics in the areas of taxation, social security and employment law, such as, for example:


  • Who is an expatriate for tax purposes and what are the differences from a tax point of view between resident and non-resident tax payers?
  • The Belgian special taxation regime for expatriates (tax circular of 1983)
  • How do the international tax treaties work and how is international double taxation avoided?
  • Payroll administration for salary splits and for expatriates
  • Typical employment agreement clauses for salary splits and for expatriate staff members
  • International social security (both treaty situations and non-treaty situations)


The program is tailor made and consequently topics can be added or deleted based on your training needs.
