Fragomen and PWC Announce Strategic Alliance
Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy (Fragomen) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in September 2018 announced a strategic alliance to offer common immigration, tax and global mobility services to clients and their cross-border employees.
Cross-border employee mobility is changing dramatically with frequent business travel replacing traditional, long-term assignments and relocations. In addition, the geopolitical landscape makes immigration increasingly complex. Developments in the field are creating new compliance challenges for organizations as governments begin to track tax and immigration requirements on a more integrated basis.
The alliance brings together PwC’s expertise in tax and global mobility and Fragomen’s legal expertise in immigration. Both firms will work together to roll out a short-term traveler solution in line with market demands.
The two firms are able to work together and offer integrated tax and global mobility services, and provide insights on the impact of government policies on corporate immigration and mobility. The alliance will also allow for guidance on risk management by optimizing clients’ compliance profiles.
