Mobility isn’t cheap. With more programs looking for ways to reduce costs without sacrificing quality, understanding total assignments cost is more important than ever.

The Cost Projection module of KPMG LINK Work Force is a calculation engine designed around your policies. It offers you insights into the overall tax program costs for both short and long-term assignments as well as business travelers, one-way moves, and permanent transfers. 


Workflow and policy combine to create a streamlined data entry and review process for projection creation. Simplified entry screens drive users through data entry and review leveraging data from KPMG LINK Work Force such as family demographics, assignment dates, and salary data as well as from vendors such as Mercer and AirInc. A standard report format further simplifies review providing both annual and total cost outlays.
