Who we are

As borders reopen and business travel resumes, companies are struggling to own and manage the new mobility landscape. Organizations should adopt a well-governed approach supporting tracking travel, assessing risks and managing identified downstream compliance actions. PwC’s business traveller solution, underpinned by market leading technology and supported by dedicated specialists, allows organisations to manage their business traveller compliance from end to end.

What are the issues created by business travellers?


  • Filing requirements and administration on behalf of the traveller.


  • Payroll withholding and reporting requirements for the employer, tax filings for the employee.

Social security

  • Withholding requirements, mitigation through certificate of coverage.

Corporate tax issues

  • Permanent establishment risk, transfer pricing.

Local requirements

  • EU Posted Workers directive, other local labour requirements

Operational issues

  • Blocked travel preventing you meeting business needs.

Safe and sustainable travel

  •  Real-time insight on who is travelling and where, travel costs, carbon footprint etc.

The PwC approach:

We use technology to support our business traveller process, using automation where possible to access data to identify and support business traveller compliance. This data can be analysed pre-travel or post-travel. Through both approaches we aim to provide a great user experience and insightful guidance for both the employee and employer. We work with you to:

  • Review your current business traveller position through data analysis and discussions
  • Recommend a future state approach – delivery model and governance framework
  • Implement end to end delivery model, underpinned by appropriate tech/data
  • Support downstream execution for ongoing activities
