Improving access to critical data - A FORTUNE 500 company faced significant tax exposure due to unaudited payroll instructions. In addition, the company needed to realign its overall goals in order to realize cost efficiencies. By implementing KPMG LINK Enterprise, the client was able to take advantage of a central repository that was accessible to its many stakeholders and vendors. Today, the client has complete administrative control over its global mobility program, while the technology facilitates accurate, timely payroll instructions and access to data for analysis and decision making.
KPMG LINK Global Equity Tracker: a flexible, web based application that helps companies manage the payroll reporting and withholding obligations for incentive compensation of mobile employees.
Global Equity Tracker has tax rules for more than 145 countries and can be used for any type of incentive arrangement or even regular pay. It not only provides payroll instructions, but supports the entire process from collection of data through to settlement, communication, and even payroll reconciliation and helps ensure your employees receive the right amount at the right time.

KPMG LINK Global Payroll Manager: helps streamline the collection and reporting of global compensation for traveling employees by leveraging automated data feeds, configurable cut-off dates and a reconciliation engine allowing you to see discrepancies in your payroll instruction and actual pay amounts.
Implementing more reliable controls - A client’s external auditor determined that the company lacked adequate controls to ensure they were properly capturing their entire short-term cross-border population. KPMG assisted the company in identifying their frequent business travelers and quantifying the level of exposure created by these domestic and international business trips. The company had under-accrued for the expenses related to the cross-border population (primarily the foreign and state tax liabilities created by their business travelers), and as a result, the company was required to make a $64M adjustment to their financials over a three‑year period.
