Why Cayman?

Preparing Your Staff to Move Overseas to Your New International Office

These days, many savvy businesses are moving their headquarters or at least some satellite offices overseas, not only for financial benefits, but also to make the running of the company more streamlined. Many businesses are finding tax breaks and ways to increase their profitability with a move overseas, such as to the Cayman Islands. As your business migrates offshore, there are a few things you can do to help prepare your staff to move to your new international office.

As an employer, you can make the move more effortless by connecting with Cayman Enterprise City for helpful tips about housing, transportation, shopping and school for employees’ children when necessary.

Learning the Culture

Culture in the Cayman Islands has been primarily influenced by that of Great Britain and the US, and should not be a tremendous culture shock for Americans moving there. Some of the local cuisine may be a little different at first, but it is truly delicious.

Preparing for Financial Differences

While the Cayman Islands is a tax-free oasis for business owners, personal taxes for employees are a separate matter.
