EY and Concur have worked together to develop an offering for clients that helps global business travellers manage tax and immigration compliance risks via the Concur App Center.
The new end-to-end business travel solution provides real-time immigration and tax assessments to business travellers. The integrated offering will capture relevant travel and business activity data within Concur. Using EY tax and immigration technology, the integration analyses the data to make a real-time assessment of a business traveller’s tax and immigration obligations before they travel.
By linking directly to real-time data within the Concur Travel and Expense platform, EY clients will be able to receive robust, real-time analytics into their domestic and international cross-border tax obligations. This seamless integration will give organisations increased visibility into potential risks before they occur, with no additional effort required from their travellers.
Michael Bertolino, EY Global People Advisory Services Leader, says: “Business travel is vital for EY clients around the world, and workforce mobility is an important driver of competitive advantage, as well as an operational necessity. The new offering helps us ensure that tax and immigration issues don’t impede employees from doing business when they are on the move. By harnessing the collective power of 10,000 EY professionals providing EY People Advisory Services, we will work together with Concur to support clients with a unique experience when it comes to managing business traveller risks.”
Mike Eberhard, President, Concur, says: "We want to make it easy for companies to adjust and adapt to the increasingly complex demands associated with global business travel-related tax and immigration. As Concur’s customers currently operate and expand globally, it’s important that we not only continue to innovate, but also work closely with industry leaders like EY to meet our clients’ current and future needs."
