Learn how AIRINC can partner with you to provide a strategic, personalized plan of action as well as the information you need to initiate the assignment.
A fast and accurate estimate of costs is critical when the business is planning for or approving an assignment or transfer. The Assignment Cost Estimator (ACE) is an online cost estimating tool which allows you to run estimates instantly.
ACE brings together carefully researched income tax rates, taxability logic, relocation allowances, and support costs into one tool. A complete solution for creating cost estimates, ACE empowers you to support the business on demand.
For over 100 countries, ACE can produce cost estimates for a variety of assignment and transfer types including:
ACE is pre-populated with AIRINC researched and benchmarked allowances and policy elements for over 30 pre-, ongoing, and post-assignment/transfer values. Alternatively, ACE can be pre-configured and pre-populated to reflect your policy or actual costs if preferred.
ACE leverages AIRINC’s income tax logic for determining the taxability of allowances and tax models for hypothetical home income tax and host gross-up values. You have the option of using AIRINC’s standard tax models or configuring them to your tax positions as required.
The business often has questions about the cost of an assignment. Our dedicated client support teams and income tax experts support you. AIRINC maintains an in-house income tax research and consulting practice with deep knowledge about income tax rates, treaties, social security, and taxability. Tax experts are available to consult with you on cost estimates and are also available to help you configure ACE to your tax needs.
ACE is a flexible tool that allows you to run individual cost estimates, over-ride values on the fly, or run batch calculations for multiple scenarios. ACE is available through AIRINC’s online portal AIRLINC. It can also be accessed via API or SSO for clients preferring an integration to an internal system.
ACE leverages both cost data and tax information to generate accurate cost estimates. AIRINC collects data on relocation expenses, assignment allowances, and family support regularly throughout the year.
AIRINC also researches income tax rates, taxability of allowances and tax logic such as residency thresholds, social security agreements, tax treaties in force, rules for calculating double tax relief, and expat tax concessions across 100 countries globally. Tax research is conducted inhouse and is sourced from several tax law sources including Wolters Kluwer (CCH), International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation (IBFD), the Big 4, and direct tax authorities.
