- Recap System
- Provides you with detailed information on every aspect of relocation: employee status; housing status, movement of household goods, property information and, category and cumulative costs. There is no fee for Recap access.
- Advanced Gross-Up Plus System
- Gross-up is when a corporation reimburses an employee for relocation expenses. The IRs treats the reimbursement as ordinary income, taxing it at the rate dictated by the transferee’s tax bracket; however, only the cost of transporting the family and its houshold goods to the new location is exempt from being taxed
- Third party-home purchase companies encourage corporations to avoid the expense of “grossing-up” their transferees’ by utilizing relocation packages.Since the corporation reimburses the third party company rather than the employee for the selling expenses, the IRS does not regard the reimbursement as income to the transferee. Gross-Up is a complicated accounting program that should be admiistered by an expert in Relocation Tax Accounting. We offer this service through a service partner.
- Expense Tracking
- An additional feature of our Information System whereby Access Relocation will post, track and report all expenses for each relocation service and for each individual transferee. The tracking and resultant reports will be in a format customized to our client’s specifications.
