LONDON (26/2/2020) – Global travel management company Reed & Mackay and Deloitte have teamed up to create an integrated and automated risk assessment solution to help clients identify their immigration and regulatory obligations.
The new offering is the first on the market to provide a travel assessment at the point of sale rather than retrospectively, allowing clients to evaluate their risk before completing their travel booking.
Clients using Reed & Mackay’s travel booking tools will now be able to receive information on any relevant immigration requirements at the time of booking and immediately request immigration services. The solution integrates Reed & Mackay’s proprietary technology, R&M/iQ, with Deloitte’s logic engine to provide an assessment in real time.
This integrated solution will also ensure companies’ HR or mobility teams are notified of any Posted Worker Directive, tax or social security obligations resulting from the booking.
With Britain having left the European Union and Posted Worker Directive obligations front of mind, Deloitte and Reed & Mackay have seen increased demand from clients for more integrated support on immigration and regulatory obligations.
Fred Stratford, CEO of Reed & Mackay, said: “We are excited to be working with Deloitte on this innovative solution to help our clients manage complex requirements around immigration and tax liabilities. This best in class solution provides clients with a streamlined process and robust risk management for their travellers.”
James Macpherson, Global Head of Deloitte’s Business Travel Advantage team, said: “We are delighted to be able to bring another business travel first to the market. Working with Reed & Mackay, we have been able to respond to a key challenge for employers in the market and create a solution that simplifies the employee experience when booking travel, strengthens our clients’ approach to travel risk management while enabling cross border business.”
