Thinking that all your employees have good common sense and therefore you don’t really need a detailed travel and entertainment expense reimbursement policy can get your organization in trouble on two fronts. First, inevitably, there will be a few employees who have a very-skewed idea of what is reasonable when the company is paying. And secondly, if you don’t hold them accountable for their behavior and actions, the company could run afoul of the IRS by endangering the accountable plan status. 

Please note: This session will address the restrictions on Entertainment due to changes in the Tax Cut & Jobs Act. 

In this session, attendees will learn how to create a plan that protects the organization while providing reasonable travel and entertainment accommodations for their employees. After this session you will be able to:

  • Craft a strong travel and entertainment policy
  • Identify issues missing from your current policy
  • Address effectively all the issues that should be included in an suitable corporate travel policy
  • Create an appropriate auditing process of employee expense reports 
  • Effectively update your existing policy
  • Pinpoint weak language in your current policy and tighten it to stop cash leaks
  • Address employee fraud issues by creating stronger policies
  • Increase policy compliance through the use of appropriate policies
  • Prevent ambiguity in policies that create problems
