Highlights of the content provided in this issue of Global Payroll magazine.


This month, we take a deeper dive into the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into effect on May 25. Read this issue’s Q&A to see how global payroll teams are playing a strategic part in GDPR compliance and find out whether or not GDPR really is the “game changer” everyone said it was going to be.

Also, find out why the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) is colliding with expatriate relocation programs and why companies worldwide need to know that if they have expatriates on their payroll, there are no more deductions or excludable reimbursements related to relocation.

Elsewhere in this issue, meet Jim Birch, Senior Director of Partner Management at Celergo, as he discusses how to communicate on a global stage and explains why companies should have a process to review the accuracy of tax filings and payments.

This month’s Country Spotlight takes us to Zimbabwe, a country with plans to streamline government, cut taxes and fees, and, most importantly for global businesses, move toward a freer economy. Learn about labor and income tax requirements in this landlocked country in Southern Africa.
