Business Traveller Tool

Our Business Traveller Tool (BTT) is a proven solution for helping businesses and their employees manage the immigration and tax compliance risk of short to medium term business travel.

The essential tool for compliant business travel

The technology is a direct response to the slowing down of the use of the traditional assignment alongside the corresponding growth in the business traveller population, and the requirement of businesses to be able to implement robust policies for immigration and tax compliance in an increasingly complex and heavily regulated environment.

It’s been designed to help reduce the cost and effort associated with this activity: our 2018 Global Mobility Survey shows Global Mobility professionals spend 50% of their time on immigration and tax compliance activities detracting from other important work.

BTT applies to organisations wishing to support their business travellers to remain immigration and tax compliant. The challenge without such a tool is that HR and the business traveller will typically either take an excessive amount of time completing a manual process or miss some of the immigration and tax questions altogether, creating both a practical and corporate compliance risk.

Detailing the compliance challenge

As most travellers who have sought work or residency permission from a foreign immigration authority can confirm, the actual process usually proves well documented and easy to follow. The process for business travel is less straightforward. It is complicated by a lack of consistent definition between one country and another as to what constitutes ‘business travel’. If you get it wrong, the consequences can be both expensive and long lasting.

Consequences

  • High profile reputational damage which can affect future visa requests from company.
  • Employee dissatisfaction and a lack of trust.
  • Budgetary risk and unexpected financial penalties.
  • Permanent Establishments being created unwittingly.
  • The risk of prosecution and legal costs, refusal of future visa applications.
  • Employment law risk.

Functionality

  • Real-time automated pre-trip assessment of visa/work permit requirements for 88 countries. (more can be added on request)
  • Passport and visa validity monitoring and automated expiry alerts.
  • IOS/Android smartphone app—also accessible via any internet portal.
  • Location services—allowing trip/traveller tracking.
  • National and state level (where relevant) tax monitoring and alerting for 160 countries.

  • Full suite of customisable reports and visualisation tools for HR.
  • Commercially attractive terms including significant discounts for scale.
  • Single price per user per year. Free licences for HR admin.
  • GDPR compliant and can be integrated to other digital platforms like travel or expense solutions.

Made moving a breeze
I never thought I would be a raving fan of a logistics company (not an exciting subject), but I am! Santa Fe moved my apartment contents and did such an amazing job.
