Many Nyrstar employees are expats, which requires specific administrative follow-up. Nyrstar employs SD Worx experts to manage the tax returns of ‘internationals’ in European subsidiaries.
“SD Worx’s strength lies in the fact that it keeps all its promises," states Flor Boeckx.
The approach of SD Worx
“SD Worx’s strength lies in the fact that it keeps its promises. We are safe in the knowledge that calculations will be ready on time. We know from experience that this is not an easy task. The same applies to back office personnel, who can also be relied upon to keep their promises”, states Flor Boeckx. “We also consulted SD Worx with respect to our executive warrant plan, a service developed in conjunction with a Belgian bank. The plan was implemented at Nyrstar with support from SD Worx, which also organised information sessions at our premises”, Bart Ulenaers relates.
“In our opinion SD Worx specifically demonstrates its added value as a local player with an international focus. The company is located in the vicinity and easily accessible. We have a single contact point for a wide range of services”, comments Bart Ulenaers. “Moreover, the company is familiar with the relevant legislation and has more than 50 years expertise”, adds Flor Boeckx, “a solid foundation for this kind of service.”
The proposed solution
Manager Flor Boeckx and HR Superintendant Bart Ulenaers: “Initially we asked SD Worx to handle the tax returns of our expats in Belgium, the Netherlands and France, a group of 15 to 20 employees deployed internationally. Because each country has its own regulations these are quite complex dossiers. SD Worx provides the necessary support with these highly specific fiscal, social security and legal obligations”, comments Flor Boeckx.
Bart Ulenaers adds: “SD Worx provides quick and accurate advice. We can contact them at any time with our queries. Our communications tend to peak in specific months when we frequently contact them, and reduce considerably in other months. It is a very practical arrangement as far as we are concerned.”
