activpayroll Launches Short-Term Business Visitors Solution

activpayroll’s Global Mobility Division announced the launch of an additional online functionality within its activ8 technology platform, which, according to the company, will help streamline data gathering and reporting processes for organizations with a Short-Term Business Visitors (STBV) Population.

Leveraging its existing eTime module functionality, its STBV online calendar and reporting solution enables employers to provide access to their business travelers from overseas to log all visits to the U.K. in real time via a mobile-friendly app. All data input into the eTime STBV solution is automatically logged, tracked, and reviewed to ensure accurate and timely reporting to HMRC at the end of each U.K. tax year.

Graham McKechnie, activpayroll’s Global Tax Director, said the company is looking forward to rolling out the process enhancement to current customers.

“The introduction of our eTime for STBV functionality through our activ8 platform represents another enhancement to our online employment tax solution,” McKechnie said. “[This enhancement] will greatly reduce the administration and effort currently placed on organizations which have business visitors from overseas present in the U.K.”
