In this Chapter Meeting we will explore some of the first steps you will need to take on your journey towards business traveller compliance.

Topics for discussion include:

  • The necessity of observing the varying, complex and fast changing legislation governing income tax, social security and immigration issues around the world.
  • How to achieve buy-in from senior stakeholders and set out your implementation roadmap
  • Understanding your business and developing a programme that is the right fit
  • The importance of a trial period and the timing of the go-live of your programme
  • How to track and report your company's business travel and activities
