Culture Show

In the interview below we cover four key tips for your repatriation or your next transition.

1 – Repatriating Your Role – You own your career and your brand

  • Maintain a Repatriation Plan with your Employer
  • Regular “home leave” where you network with your previous colleagues and meet your sponsor and other important influencers, and key decision-makers.
  • Think about alternative roles you could do with your expat experience, start your own business
  • Update your CV and LinkedIn profile and add your transferable skills

2- Expect Re-Entry Shock – It’s not all milk and chocolate

  • Reading the news and keeping up with the latest trends in the country before you repatriate
  • Keep relationships up and return “home” regularly.
  • Psychological contract: Consider what you expect and write it down as it might need alignment with your employer, your partner, and your family

3 – Plan the Logistics – The devil’s in the detail, consult the Professionals

  • Negotiate a repatriation budget and clause in your assignment contract.
  • Check all immigration requirements for your kids, and partners with different nationalities (Example: Language requirements)Optimize Taxes – Talk to Your Tax Expert when to go

4 – Optimizing Taxes – Talk to Your Tax Expert about when to go

  • Go through all the tax and financial aspects of your repatriation carefully with an expert, especially when you are planning to retire early or when you expect a severance package.
