Departure Services—Ensuring a successful shutdown of existing services 

We will support your employees as they prepare for their next assignment or their return home. They will be able to leave their current location smoothly and efficiently with support from our departure services team. This is just as important as the settling in phase and can impact compliance risk, costs and assignee experience.
Our service is designed to help you and your assignees meet your obligations at the close of a tenancy, as swiftly and cost-effectively as possible. We also guide families through any host country exit requirements before departing. This makes the departure as easy and stress-free as possible. We manage all aspects of ending the assignee’s services relating to their home, schools, and local authorities.
