Pre-Decision Services

Cost Estimates

Offering comprehensive international cost estimates for clients is essential to the success of any relocation program. Providing this information early in the decision-making process provides management with the potential financial impacts of the assignment and the opportunity to consider cost containment measures, such as hiring locally or modifying benefit offerings.

We factor in the employee’s personal criteria, policy benefits, the length of the assignment and estimated tax costs from applicable tax authorities, as well as other pertinent information. Costs are gathered from credible data sources and projected over the life of the assignment. We provide a detailed breakdown of compensation, relocation expenses and taxes. Our reports are available in the home or host currency, or in US dollars.

  • Can the cost estimates be customized based on specific employee needs and company policies?
  • Can you provide a detailed breakdown of all components included in the cost estimate?
  • What are your primary sources for cost data and how do you ensure their credibility and accuracy?
  • Do you offer different versions for short-term vs long-term assignments?
  • What level of ongoing support do you offer once the initial estimate is provided?

Assignment Management

Accepted Offer: Assignment Counseling And Support

Relocation Coordinates offers constant counseling and support to the assignee and family. A Senior Relocation Manager (SRM) conducts an in-depth needs assessment to create a comprehensive relocation plan that meets the specific needs of the employee and their family. Following a thorough review of policy benefits, a customized timeline is developed. We introduce our service partners and commit to a smooth transition to ease any worry the assignee may have at the onset of the move. The SRM provides access to our online portal via a personalized passcode, so the assignee can monitor their relocation and track the payment of expenses and allowances.

Visas and Immigration

Facilitating the visa and immigration process is a critical component of our clients’ successful global mobility programs. We work closely with an experienced network of trusted partners and immigration experts to initiate the application process, authenticate documents, process renewals and extensions, and ensure proper protocol is met to obtain work permits and residency cards. Our Senior Relocation Managers (SRMs) coordinate and monitor all the necessary steps for visa and immigration compliance.

Global Compensation

RCI’s global compensation service accommodates earnings approaches that range from systems that relate compensation back to the home country (the traditional home-based “balance sheet” approach) to systems that integrate compensation into the “host country” salary structure. Earnings programs employed by global organizations are quite complex, with pay often delivered from multiple locations in a variety of ways made to the assignee. Our suite of services includes, but is not limited to, compensation accumulation/collection, hypothetical tax, estimation balance sheet and instructions, certificates of coverage, tax payment and equalization support (TEQ), audit & compliance review and payment processing.

Tax Assistance

RCI partners with global tax experts to ensure all client programs are compliant. We implement global tax regulations and accurately apply them in each jurisdiction for every relocation. Their specialized guidance provides an integrated approach for both our client and assignee, which addresses the tax ramifications that result from assignment taxes and costs. The tools and advice simplify the global compensation and reporting process, including the calculation of hypothetical taxes and split payrolls with home and host countries. Our tax assistance service creates a seamless experience for the assignee that is aligned with the benefits and tax protection they are entitled to.

Destination Services

Home Finding Services

Our Senior Relocation Managers (SRMs) are dedicated to helping international transferees find their new home. After discussing the employee’s lifestyle, housing preferences, budget and specific needs during their in-depth needs assessment, the assigned SRM formulates a home criteria summary and shares it with a uniquely matched destination service consultant. The real estate agent then researches, identifies, and presents suitable properties that meet the employee’s needs and budget. They arrange a tour with the employee to view homes for consideration. After a selection is made, the lease agreement is reviewed by the agent, who advocates for the assignee ensuring that the rental amount, security deposit and terms are appropriate.

Temporary Housing

RCI partners with corporate housing providers to provide interim housing solutions on a worldwide basis. A needs-based analysis is conducted with the assignee to determine preferred housing needs, including size, housing type, budget and location. Employee preferences are also taken into consideration, such as special amenities, including a fitness center or pet friendly communities. We communicate the employee’s home criteria with one of our trusted service providers, who will identify and share available options with the employee. Once a decision is made, we review leases and obtain signatures, deliver move-in instructions and arrange proper billing.

Settling-In Services

RCI provides a full array of support services to help every family settle into the host country. These services often begin with an in-depth tour of the new community with a destination service consultant. The tour includes driving by local shopping centers, banks, post offices, hospitals, recreational facilities and an overview of the public transportation system. The assignee’s Senior Relocation Manager (SRM) and destination specialist will lend assistance in securing required residency documentation, obtaining driver’s licenses, setting up bank accounts, utilities, and methods for establishing credit. Recommendations are available for local grocery and furniture stores, child care facilities, medical practitioners, and other local businesses and services.

Education Assistance

The quality and availability of public and private education plays a critical role whether an assignee will accept an international assignment. International relocation requires extensive research into local scholastic offerings. In fact, some companies contract specific education specialists as an individual resource for families. Our Senior Relocation Managers (SRMs) work closely with destination service providers that are familiar with the local school system to recommend the ideal institutions that meet family requirements. We gather and provide brochures and detailed information about the schools, including the enrollment and testing process. If the family needs additional assistance, an educational consultant can arrange and accompany the family to the school’s admission interviews and provide guidance in completing registration forms.

Language Training

Language training provides significant benefits to the client, assignee and family. A basic understanding of the new language increases employee success by developing necessary communication skills, which promote critical business relationships. For the family, it helps everyone adapt to their new environment quickly and affords them greater confidence with day to day activities that may require some knowledge of local language or dialects. Training options can be arranged through group lessons, private lessons or self-study programs depending on the specific needs of the assignee and family.

Culture Training

One of the greatest challenges employees encounter in a foreign country is adjusting to a different culture. Investing in cultural training enhances the assignee’s ability to function effectively. They learn the impact of culture on communication, management practices and work relationships. It also optimizes the family’s ability to transition into the new community. Cultural training specialists provide the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to effectively interact across cultures through lessons arranged by our staff.

Spousal/Partner Assistance

The importance of spousal assistance shouldn’t be underestimated. The inability for the spouse and families to adapt to the new environment is the largest cause of assignment failure. With our destination consultants, the spouse/partner is empowered to find their own purpose and fulfillment by identifying activities and clubs that match their hobbies and interests, advising of educational opportunities, locating volunteer organizations to join, and perhaps even helping them find employment opportunities whenever possible.

Our property management partners ensure the unit is well maintained throughout the assignment period.


At RCI, we believe that every company should provide an adequate repatriation program for their global talent.

Our services include custom coordination, such as the rental or purchase of a new home, household good shipment, and expense tracking.
