Many employers in the Kern County, Ventura County, Los Angeles County and San Luis Obispo County areas choose to relocate and move employees in and out of the area for corporate relocation. Luckily they’ve got a friend named Tholco in the business to help them with their California Corporate Relocation Real Estate Services and Transfers. When an organization does a corporate relocation with their employee there will certainly be many moving parts, items like who signs what purchase contracts and applicable addenda in the process can make a huge difference in the tax ramifications associated with the transferees relocation. Similarly there are also corporations that choose to do a relocation concession to their employees which is a totally different set of rules. The careful navigation of such relocation processes and balance of attentive, up to date communication with transferee and relocation consultants is something we take very seriously which attributes to our 5 Star Reviews on Realtor, Zillow and Yelp!
We serve many relocation companies that vary in size, clients and relocation quantity. Transferee relocations are always held in a strict confidential manner and we take careful steps to ensure this high level of confidentiality also applies to the systems we use that include Multi-Factor Authentication and Independent Verification and Compliance that meet the requirements specified in ISO 27001, European Union (EU) Model Clauses, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Business Associate Agreement (HIPAA BAA), and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) just to name a few. Our corporate relocation service areas are vast and we cover many parts of both Northern California and Southern California including the Central Valley and Central Coast. Whether you are a Corporate Transferee buying or selling a home or Relocation Consultant with a transferee that is needing relocation assistance we can help. We have the knowledge and the experience to do so properly so do not hesitate to contact our Relocation Agent, Jason Thoele directly when you require professional relocation assistance.
For employees selling a home, some relocation companies offer programs and benefits such as reimbursement on customary closing cost and/or guaranteed buyout (GBO) to transferees moving from a specific area. While relocation companies often offer reimbursement for the costs associated with a employee moving not all companies offer a GBO program. In this case, Sellers will attempt to sell their home on the real estate market but if are unsuccessful in their attempts the company they work for will actually purchase their home from them. It’s important to note that there are very specific rules and processes that must be followed which we are very proficient in.
Another option for employees relocating is for their employer to offer a relocation package in the form of a lump sum payment. Depending on an employees circumstances such as the employee not owning a home or simply moving within the same state this may be very advantageous for the transferee as some lump sum payouts will be in excess of the actual moving costs. As a transferee you’ll want to consider this option and weigh out the expenses associated with moving before approving any relocation package. Additionally, it’s good to speak with your tax professional to see how the payout will be reported so that you negotiate the correct amount and don’t end up up-side down. As a general rule, it’s always best for employers to use a relocation company to assist with the relocation process but some employers using the “lump sum” payout process will choose to eliminate the relocation service provider and cut the employee a check directly.
