Case Study – Partnering with HR to Mitigate Travel Related Tax Risks
Monday, August 13, 2018 | 9:30 AM – 10:00 AM | Meeting Room 5A Upper Level
GTN will also be presenting a case study to highlight how we work with our client’s global mobility team and their business travel department to implement a monitoring and risk assessment process using their travel expense data rather than requiring business travelers to complete a travel calendar. The session will illustrate how we use the data from client’s expense management system to create reports the global mobility team can use to assess risk and take action where needed. Further details can be found here.
