T&E Compliance with IRS

Description: Complying with IRS Regs regarding expense reimbursements just got a whole lot harder. Organizations everywhere are eyeing the bottom line and insisting on rigid travel & entertainment policy compliance. The IRS is taking an equally harsh stance tightening the rules.  Compliance must now be not only with the company policies but also IRS rules. Otherwise, you could end up answering not only to the CFO but also the IRS–and that can be truly ugly. Guarantee your company is compliant with the latest travel & expense issues.

  • Overall I was very pleased with the course. Previously I knew just enough about pivot tables to be dangerous. Now I see the power that they have and I feel much more confident using pivot tables. The course materials were very clear and well prepared. I’ll be looking at your website for future CPE hours.
