Increasing cross-border business travel, services and short and long-term deployments: global mobility is constantly evolving, with ever new demands.

The legal aspects in particular require organisations to be more transparent and to understand country-specific circumstances.

terrassign takes care of all the relevant aspects of an overseas assignment – including employment, residence, social security and tax law: proficiently, professionally and tailored to individual needs. Each employee assignment is planned holistically and includes only those services that are truly necessary. We thus guarantee budget, planning and organisational security.

We take over the complete management of assigning your employees – including within the European Union. This involves handling all the necessary registrations in the assignment destination country, obtaining the required certificates from the country of residence or employment, and any formalities that may arise at the end of the assignment. We also ensure compliance with the legal requirements for the retention of the respective data.
