There are lots of reasons why someone would take a flight on the company’s dime. They might be heading to a tradeshow or conference, visiting with a client, or possibly relocating to a new area.

Whatever the reason, companies will be paying more at the gate for airfare tickets than they have in recent months.

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting some of our clients with my team to review their program. As we completed our final meeting and were saying our goodbyes, one of the individuals we met with said:

“You know, we appreciate you coming out to see us. Not many companies do face-to-face meetings anymore. The fact that you took the time to do this meeting here, not just over the phone, really shows how much you care about our success.”

How confident are you about the structure and strength of your vehicle reimbursement program? Is it a hastily prepared and unstructured plan, or is it a professional policy that supports your culture of fairness in wages, benefits and expense management? Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) wage codes recognize how expense reimbursement affects wage compliance, and weak reimbursement plans have contributed to violations and daunting challenges.

Every year while Americans are out and about braving the hustle and bustle of the holiday shopping season, checking every item off their gift list, the IRS is delivering a gift of its own: the IRS standard mileage rate. Today, the IRS announced the yearly adjustment to the IRS standard mileage rate also known as the safe harbor rate (In this post, we will refer to it as the IRS mileage rate).

Each type of business vehicle reimbursement program has its purpose in the marketplace. For example, fleet programs are great for companies whose employees need specialty equipment, like ladder racks or tool boxes. Cents-per-mile programs fit well with companies who have occasional business drivers. Fixed and variable rate programs are great for those companies who have high mileage drivers and are looking for tax benefits.

Every year around the middle of December, the IRS releases the standard mileage rate for the following year. This is known as the "safe harbor rate". This rate, which is developed using Runzheimer data, is meant to be a number that individuals can use to write off the business expense of a personal vehicle on their taxes. However, since its inception, it has been used in a number of ways including being used as a standard to reimburse employees for using their own vehicles for work.
