9.2 Take Me Home, Country Road…the World Tour!

Join us on a world tour where we discuss all things global, covering some of the key developments in the world of share plans, as well as looking at vital global plan design decisions. Rolling out a global plan poses a fundamental question - is it best to stick close to home, developing a global version of local plans, or should you embark on a world tour, with different, specifically designed plans in every country? The panelists will share their decision-making process with you, looking at their choices, as well as taking into account discretionary versus all employee plans. Also, on this world tour, the panelists will highlight some of the 26 countries which offer tax-advantaged plans (showing where and how global companies utilize these tax breaks); we take a look at recent legal, tax and regulatory changes around the world, including foreign exchange updates in Argentina and China, review securities laws updates in the EU and the Philippines, and assess tax updates such as those in Canada and France. This is one world tour where you will want to make sure you have a front row seat!
