Domestic business travel is on the rise. Every time your employees travel across state borders, they may be creating tax exposures. As withholding audit rates increase, this has become a pressing issue for payroll departments across the country.
On September 23, 2016, Nishant Mittal will address New York’s largest payroll conference on how companies can use data to manage multistate exposures. The American Payroll Association’s New York State Payroll Conference features two full days of educational content on the most pressing issues facing payroll departments. Mr. Mittal’s session will focus on regulation affecting multistate withholding and how payroll professionals can use technology to identify and manage tax risks.

“Hungry for revenue, governments tax time spent inside their borders.”
Compass Magazine has published a feature by Charles Wallace on the growing compliance risks that business travel creates for companies. We were delighted to see Monaeo featured as a leading solution helping business travelers and Fortune 1000 companies move towards compliance.
In recent years, authorities have begun closely scrutinizing business travelers and the tax exposures that they create when spending time within the borders of a country or, domestically, within other states. Soon, writes Wallace, it will be even harder to fly under the radar. More than 100 countries have joined The Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. The forum is working towards automated exchange of immigration reports, hotel stays and airline reservations, providing authorities with the data they need to catch non-compliant firms and travelers.
Wallace points out that now companies are harnessing technology to help travelers and their employers also access that same data, so that they can be compliant and be better prepared to defend against audits. The article highlighted Monaeo’s mobile app as a solution catching on in the market, used by Fortune 1000 industry leaders across verticals.
Monaeo users have a range of data sources to choose from when deciding how to document their travel across state and country lines. In addition to user-friendly mobile, tablet and laptop apps, travelers can also leverage automated analysis of travel and expense reports or simply input their location by hand. It turns out that most executives prefer the option that Compass spotlighted: our mobile app, which does the work on the user’s behalf.
