Secondments & Sponsorships
Moving Within a Company
When establishing a new subsidiary company, or registering a UK establishment, you may want some employees from the Head Office locally to aid in the setup and opening of the business. This is where you can use secondments to their full advantage.
If the individual is working for the same entity overseas, the sponsored worker will need to be seconded. Goodwille work with you, as the parent company, to ensure that the secondment is legal under UK law, and the correct tax levels are enforced through partnership with other tax agencies.
Secondments can be great for an employees career development, providing an opportunity for the secondee to gain new skills and life experiences, often in other countries. For the business it can generate new income, maintain company culture across the group, and reward staff with exciting short-term projects.
Within a secondment, the overarching idea is that the secondee remains employed under the original employer during the secondment, and after the period ends, returns to the original place of work in the previous role. This is usually based on location for those companies who establish their business in the UK from overseas.
