Expense Reporting Best Practices Seminar (Washington, District Of Columbia, United States - October 3-4, 2018) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 18, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 18, 2018--The “Expense Reporting Best Practices” conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

With companies everywhere eyeing the bottom line, insistence on compliance with travel & entertainment policy is becoming more commonplace. What’s more, the IRS has also been taking an equally harsh stance, so compliance must now not only be to the company policies but also IRS rules. Otherwise, you could end up answering not only to the CFO but also the IRS-and that is truly ugly.

In this seminar, we’ll examine best practices as they relate to the expense reimbursement process, practices that will not only keep your Travel & Entertainment (T&E) expenses in control but will also keep you in compliance with IRS regulations. In fact, we’ll start with an intensive review of what the IRS requires of an expense reimbursement policy in order for your company to maintain an accountable plan. We’ll also identify other best practices every organization needs to use in order to have an effective policy. And we’ll share data showing exactly what other companies are doing with regards to expense reimbursements.

We’ll then move on to discuss creating an effective policy and addressing the common problems many companies encounter. These issues were selected based on feedback from hundreds of professionals just like you. And we won’t shirk from addressing the newer services, such as Lyft, Uber, Airbnb and others. AP Now research shows most companies are using these services but few have set guidelines for them. We’ll share some best practice approaches for the use of these services.

The last part of the seminar will focus on the ugly, but prevalent, issue of expense reimbursement fraud. It is a widespread issue that most organizations turn a blind eye to. We’ll discuss the many, many different types of T&E fraud and show you how to combat each type. Before closing we’ll discuss the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the T&E implications.

This interactive session will be filled with real-life examples and attendees will have the opportunity to not only interact with other attendees but see how they’d treat different delicate situations.

After this session, you will be able to:

Integrate IRS requirements into your organization’s T&E policy Create processes to address use of new services such as Uber, Lyft, Airbnb etc. Develop tactics to reduce the number of employees submitting expense reports late Build a policy that deals with employee misuse or abuse of the travel and entertainment policy Incentivize managers to approve in a more timely and appropriate manner Implement strong controls to deter expense reimbursement fraud Identify common expense reimbursement frauds some employees employ Implement strong controls to deter expense reimbursement fraud Create a tight T&E policy that will prevent misconceptions about your T&E policy 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 Eliminate common expense reimbursement headaches
