Employee Expense Reimbursements: Compliance Workshop

Expense Reimbursement Check

The pandemic changed many things … including your handling employee's expense reimbursements.

For example, with more employees working remotely, how much of their business expenses can you reimburse tax-free? The answer is a lot, but you have to do it the right way.

Also, the new payroll relief contained in the Families First and CARES Act means the IRS is laser-focused on your payroll procedures. And the legal and financial risks for mishandling employee expense reimbursements have spiked in recent years.

Join us Thursday, October 15, to learn the most up-to-date rules and requirements for managing, processing and reporting employees' expense reimbursements.

Your books need to survive an IRS spot-check. You must know which reimbursements for employee expenses should be treated as tax-free … and which as taxable compensation.

If handled incorrectly, employee expense reimbursements can be disallowed, meaning they'd be considered compensation to employees. The result: An unhappy employee – and your company – would be on the hook for the related payroll taxes and penalties. That's a career black-eye for you.

In this advice-packed webinar, you'll discover:

  • Whether you can reimburse employees for masks and other PPE
  • Which employee reimbursements should be treated as expenses and which as compensation
  • How to reimburse telecommuters for their often pricey home-office expenses
  • Which payments made to employees are subject to payroll tax
  • The most common reimbursement mistakes made by employers
  • Whether you should run expense reimbursements through payroll or accounts payable
  • When to use per diems and advanced accounting – and how to account for them
  • The rules for accountable plans, and how they apply to employee expense and travel reimbursements

Plus, this interactive webinar allows you to have your question about reimbursements answered by a true expert: Alice Gilman, editor of Payroll Legal Alert.

Bottom line: Spot the holes in your expense-reimbursement compliance before the IRS does. Get educated now on the new rules of employee expense reimbursements!
