EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Employing foreign nationals on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) can be challenging. There are numerous government agencies involved and confusion over the correct visa category, U.S. Coast Guard requirements and U.S. taxation of these employees. Join us in a discussion of the challenges facing employers when sending foreign nationals offshore and what is required by U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Customs & Border Patrol, the U.S. State Department and U.S. Internal Revenue Service to limit liability and ensure compliance.

DISCUSSION TOPICS:

 

  • Who is eligible to work on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf?
  • Brief overview of the U.S. Coast Guard manning requirements for the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf.
  • Wage reporting and tax withholding for B-1 OCS workers: does federal income tax need to be paid?
  • Do tax treaties exempt income from tax in the U.S.?
  • What is an ITIN and how to apply?
