Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

Who are your typical clients?
GTT's mobility solutions are aimed at any individual professional or company that has employees that travel, even within the same state or province because many cities impose taxes on those who visit cities to work. So, traveler's, assignees, expatriates, and others who or travel or relocate for work.
How does GTT do calculations?
GTT uses its own calculation engine and the taxonomy provided from your tax / legal team or the tax experts in our partner community to define and maintain tax calculations.

No coding is needed. All instructions are created in a self-documenting script that a nonprogrammer can understand.
How does GTT track mobile employees?
GTT uses a simple app for mobility input, which can be displayed on a phone, a computer, or a tablet. The user selects their location from a list of pre-populated locations.
Can I enter travel receipts/expenses at the same time I enter mobility data?
Yes, GTT provides the means for automated input of expense items and receipt attachments.
Can I get reports of employees who are approaching a travel threshold?
Yes, you can set travel thresholds and alerts based on your company policy, then set up your custom workflow process to enforce it.
Are your tax calculations audited?
