Half man, half amazing.
It takes people and technology to do this job right.
Since 2011, Blackspark has been helping customers reduce audit risk, by implementing internal controls for accurate compensation allocation required due to business travel. Our clients are primarily large corporations, but we also provide compliance services directly to smaller organizations with multi-state travel and withholding risks. Leveraging our proprietary technology, we are focused on delivering services with maximum speed, efficiency and accuracy. In addition to mitigating risks, we replace existing cumbersome and manual processes with effective automation. Therefore, we frequently engage clients at a fraction of the cost of their existing tax services provider.
Things are moving quickly. The volume of business travel by employers increases year over year, as they seek to grow their share of the global economic pie. But governments want their slice, too. 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 accelerating 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.
Don’t get left behind.
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 current level of financial risk, to tracking your extended 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. We provide everything you need to keep pushing ahead, without worrying about what’s behind you.
