Frequently Asked Questions
Mobility Compensation refers to the various compensation processes involved with the lifecycle of an international assignee or permanent transferee. The process starts with the creation of a Cost Estimate, including costs associated with base compensation, relocation expenses involved with the years of transfers and each year in between, ongoing allowances, and the related taxes. Mobility Compensation also includes reporting of compensation delivery to the assignee via a report known as a Balance Sheet, leading to Payroll and Shadow Payroll Instructions. Global compensation and reportable expenses need to be collected and compiled into a year-end Global Statement of Earnings – this includes the capability to translate data denominated in various currencies into one common currency depending on who requires the Global Statement of Earnings report as well as the capability to report in fiscal years, where applicable.
Ineo’s process entails automated compensation collection requests and reminders by location using Excel templates that can be tailored as desired by the client/location.
Once a location returns the requested compensation data, Ineo’s Global Compensation team batch uploads and validates the data leveraging our automated audit functionality prior to posting it to a transferee’s record. Additionally, approved expenses and invoice details residing in Ineo’s platform can be compensation collected for consolidation of total compensation.
Ineo’s Shadow Payroll Reporting module enables the reporting (at a frequency dictated by the client) of relevant transactions to a given location. Note that reporting can be done to home country, host country, or a third shadow location.
Global Statements of Earnings (GSOE’s) can be generated from Ineo’s Platform in both summary and detail format. Ineo’s technology offers maximum flexibility in terms of the GSOE report presentation. For example, it can be run on flexible date ranges which can be distinct for payroll v. non-payroll transactions, in the desired currency, based on distinct location pay code descriptions or compensation code descriptions, etc.
