About The Event
If a company pays school tuition for expatriate dependents, ISF Scholarships can reduce annual education costs. ISF Scholarships, expressly designed for companies that pay tuition and fees for dependents, are tax-exempt and eliminate tax equalization reimbursements.
Company-paid tuitions for school-age dependents of expatriate executives are taxed as income to these employees. The company reimburses executives through tax equalization payments, which also are taxable. Tax equalization ultimately increases annual education costs by about 70%.
A company with 100 dependents attending private schools, incurs annual tuition costs of about $2.5 million. Tax equalization reimbursements cost the company an added $1.8 million. ISF Scholarships reduce tax equalization payments by about 40%.
