Advantages to Using a Global Relocation Service

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

The economies of the world are now more interconnected than ever. Businesses and individuals now regularly move not only within their own country, but around the world. The reasons for this are numerous, from reducing costs and tax burdens to finding new opportunities for growth. Many manufacturing companies are relocating their operations to East Asia and India while professionals from developing countries find themselves moving to the west to find jobs.

Using a global relocation service like Unipack makes the physical relocation of a company or family seamless and stress free. Most transportation companies can only move cargo within a single nation or between major international hubs. This means that, in order to relocate overseas, coordination between many different transportation services and government bureaucracies needs to take place. For someone not experienced with the process, this can be a nightmare. A global relocation service can take care of all the necessary details.

When using a global relocation service like Unipack, one needs to only provide the necessary information and the rest is taken care of. Customs forms, bills of lading, import/export documentation and transfer requests are all handled, providing a door-to-door service that is stress free. By using a service like this, a global relocation customer can concentrate on the more important issues of moving like training and adapting to a new environment.

At the end of our last post, we asked a question that would lead into today’s continued topic: What can companies do to leverage technology in order to reduce cost, increase accuracy, compliance and reporting capabilities in the global mobility space?

Unipack provides new technologies and best practices to help manage global relocation cost, data and compensation accrual for tax reporting and budgeting. These are areas that are important to all companies, but in the past, they have been a challenge to achieve in this complex global compensation arena.

New, sophisticated services and programs can streamline otherwise labor-intensive reporting processes
. Additionally, they can provide customized reporting solutions on a faster, real-time basis while also reducing the rate of error. Corporate International Movers exist for these purposes—to provide administrative, back-office payroll and financial reporting solutions on a global scale.

When evaluating what type of program is right for a company—whether it is payroll management, tax preparation or managing global compensation—executives should select ones that are compatible with multiple countries and multiple sets of payroll codes.
Companies always struggle with tying together numbers at the end of year, but there should be ongoing, real-time reporting and analysis so that annual financial records become merely just another step. Let the Global Relocation Companies do the work for you and provide effective, accurate data to your organization.
