  • Share

Thursday, 15 November 2012 — A growing demand for business immigration services, has led EY to expand a key area of its Human Capital practice with Katie Malyon & Associates joining the firm.

EY’s global immigration team helps clients with compliance and advice relating to work permit and visa applications, extensions for business employment situations and development of strategic immigration solutions.

Twenty three employees of Katie Malyon & Associates, including the firm’s Principal Katie Malyon have joined the firm.

EY Oceania Global Immigration Leader Wayne Parcell says this sees EY Australia’s national global immigration team increase to more than 70 with the global immigration team enabling even more new Australian stories with each and every piece of immigration advice.

“This expansion will enhance our current service offering, further integrating our immigration and tax services, providing a holistic risk management framework for our clients,” Mr Parcell said.

Within EY Tax, the Human Capital Global Mobility practice employs more than 5,900 dedicated professionals worldwide and delivers a comprehensive range of services, including International Assignment, Expatriate Tax and Global Immigration services to more than 140 countries.

EY Asia-Pacific Human Capital Leader Nick Pond says the expansion will particularly strengthen EY’s immigration service capability across the Asia-Pacific.

“Traditionally this type of work has been the realm of specialist firms but the growing demand for integrated mobility services, the complexity of immigration laws both in Australia and globally has opened the way for firms like EY,” Mr Pond said.

“Katie is a highly regarded immigration specialist and since starting Katie Malyon & Associates, the practice has grown to serve a broad range of corporate clients and individuals, from major multinationals to key domestic companies. We are pleased to have someone of Katie’s caliber joining our firm.”

Mr Pond added, “Ms Malyon was also a state finalist in the prestigious NSW 2012 Telstra Business Women’s Awards.”

Ms Malyon says: “We are delighted to be joining this highly regarded practice”

“Currently one in four people in the Australian workforce have a visa1, so changes to immigration and industrial relations policy can be a significant challenge for human resources teams. We are looking forward to working closely with our colleagues to develop this into the leading mobility practice,” Ms Malyon said.
