Equus Software’s New Mobile Application Ensures Companies Stay Compliant with Complex Tax and Immigration Laws
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Denver, Colorado – September 12, 2017: Equus Software, a leader in cloud solutions for the mobile workforce, announced today the launch of a new mobile application for its PinPoint Travel Calendar, supporting iOS and Android devices.
Equus provides global workforce management solutions for organizations around the world. The new mobile app makes it easier for employers to support cross-border business travelers no matter where their business needs take them. As organizations continue to look for growth opportunities abroad, numerous studies have shown that frequent cross-border business travel will continue to increase as an effective mode of managing far-flung operations.
However, cross-border business travel can trigger personal income tax obligations as well as withholding and reporting obligations for the employer. Noncompliance with applicable tax and other laws may raise risks for the organization and the employee.
PinPoint Travel Calendar helps employees and employers avoid tax compliance problems. For the employee, PinPoint allows viewing past and upcoming travel and make corrections easily. The mobile application makes tracking even easier, via GPS prompt or manual input, allowing business travelers to log and track their travel on-the-go.
Beyond tax compliance, the PinPoint Travel Calendar app also makes it easier for companies to find out where their employees are in an emergency situation, assisting with duty of care obligations to employees.
“Our core value is to simplify global workforce mobility. Whether that be for Global Mobility Professionals, relocating employees or business travelers. In a global marketplace, it is important that administrative necessities like tracking travel do not impede business or the lives of employees. This app allows both employees and HR teams to more easily remain compliant and maintain an appropriate duty of care.” Stated Mark Thomas, CEO of Equus Software.
Managing risks associated with frequent business travel and having a full understanding of employee’s whereabouts in case of an emergency should be part of the overall mobility strategy. The PinPoint Travel Calendar mobile application simplifies tracking travel for frequent business travelers. It also helps companies remain compliant with complex tax and immigration laws.
