Minneapolis, 30 September 2021: CWT, the Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform, has signed a global referral agreement with Tracker Software Technologies (TST), a specialist in business traveler compliance management. Following this arrangement, CWT will be able to provide a data feed of travel bookings for mutual customers to the TST platform at our customers’ request, which automatically assesses individual trip data and proactively alerts nominated stakeholders, travel managers and their travelers, to specific tax and immigration compliance requirements pre-trip.
In response to global events such as the pandemic and Brexit, border controls have tightened, and new taxation rules and work visa requirements are in place which vary widely between countries and states. Employers and their travelers are at risk of significant fines and sanctions if they do not have the correct immigration and tax protocols in place for any given business trip. TST’s solution is designed to eliminate the headache of navigating these complexities and help keep travelers and their employers fully compliant in the ever-evolving landscape of a mobile workforce.
“Our customers have a need for streamlined processes, real-time visibility of where their travelers are, how long they’ll be gone, the type of work they’re doing and, to be alerted to any tax and immigration compliance actions required. Not just in the EU, UK or US, but globally,” said Patrick Andersen, CWT President & Chief Commercial Officer. “Our collaboration with TST, which has one of the world’s most extensive rules engines on the market, enables CWT to offer this crucial, accurate and pre-emptive tax, immigration and Posted Worker compliance solution, in a simple workflow, to our customers globally,” concluded Andersen.
“Today’s travelers need innovative thinking, global scale and specialized expertise. Our team’s aim is to compliment CWT services by providing compliant, positive, and seamless immigration, tax and posted worker data to their clients, allowing peace of mind for both their travelers and managers,” added Liam Brennan, CEO of TST.
