One of the most disruptive aspects of transferring an employee is the concern about managing the sale of the home in the departure location  The process is technically complicated and the costs associated with the disposal of the transferee’s home represents one of the largest elements in relocation spend.

Our Closing Services take this complex process out the employee’s hands allowing them to concentrate on other aspects of their transfer. Our clients benefit because closing costs are not treated as a taxable reimbursement, through our administration of a properly structured two-step sale process. AECC will acquire the employee’s home on the employer’s behalf and subsequently incur selling costs with the outside buyer, all in accordance with IRS and Worldwide ERC guidelines. 

A properly structured Home Sale program eliminates the need to treat closing costs as a taxable employee benefit.
