An Expat Employment Contract is a particular contract between you and your employer (even if you own the company). It’s what expats and digital nomads use to clearly outline the shift in their ‘Tax Home’ (a key step in qualifying for the lucrative US expat tax breaks).
Who needs an Employment Contract?
Even if you are employed by your own company and then relocate abroad, you’ll still need an employment contract to help qualify for your expat tax breaks. To qualify for the US-side tax breaks, it’s essential to document multiple expat related factors. The IRS will not take your word for it! So, the best way to document these expat factors is via your employment contract (again, even if you work for your own company)
Important: Your new working ‘abroad’ employment contract will also need to detail the beneficial business reasons. This means that your move abroad is not made solely for personal reasons.
