TOPIC
Automatic Exchange of Information: Impact on reporting and administration of employee share plans
In this webinar we gave a general overview of the new rules implemented for the automatic exchange of information (AEol) and a road map of when and how this will be implemented in the various jurisdictions.

For cross boarder employees and especially for international equity plan participants these rules will also have an impact. Based on examples, we highlighted possible impacts and responsibilities you as an employer might have and also discussed questions from participants you might be confronted with.
