Withholding tax audit risk?
You can relax, we’re on it.

Read Case Study

“I need more work to do.”

(Said no executive, ever.)

Which is why, if you are reading this, it is probably because you have withholding tax audit and compensation allocation issues. Or, at least, you suspect that your company might. Why? Because a complex web of payroll and tax regulations govern where, when and to what extent an employer is required to perform non-resident withholding on behalf of their traveling employees and executives. Not only internationally, but from state to state inside the United States, too.

The increasing audit activity by tax authorities means the financial risks of non-compliance are growing. The risks include not only failure to withhold penalties, but corporate reputational risk, too. Which means somebody is going to have to do the necessary work to address these issues. Ugh.

We can help.

At Blackspark, our objective is to help you eliminate audit risk with minimal impact to your existing business operations. We are already doing exactly that for some of the world’s largest companies. From determining your existing level of financial risk, to tracking your short term business travelers and generating wage allocation data, we systematically address each pain point of the specific challenges facing your organization. We’ll even help craft your policy and support communication to any traveling employees that may be affected. All at a fraction of the cost of your existing tax service provider.

“I didn’t believe it when I heard it would be quick to deploy. But it was so easy to plug in. We were immediately up and running after just 20 minutes on the phone.”
Shivani Bhatia, McGraw Hill Education

Lynette Stolarzyk, Cliffs Natural Resources
