Business Travel Analytics - The world outside your window

Global business travellers potentially trigger compliance and withholding obligations. Since the global economic travails of 2008 and their impact on tax revenues across many jurisdictions, tax authorities have faced pressure to reduce the "tax gap" – the shortfall between what could be and what is actually collected.
