We centrally manage concur from the U.S. and use it globally in Europe and Asia. Germany is the most challenging given it requirements. Has anyone implemented Concur in Germany where it is user friendly for the employee to process expense reports via the requirments? Are company would love to speak to anyone that considers optimal use of Concur in Germany.
I've set Germany up in the past at my prior company with Travel Allowance. Since then, I'm at a new company and starting from scratch. I'm trying to determine if TA is required. Also trying to determine whether airfare has to be put on a BTA or Lodge card rather than personal cards.
If I get answers, I'm willing to share. Have you had any success?
some 400 customers in Germany are using Concur. German legislation is very tricky and hard to understand fpr people from outside Germany.
We have complex per diem guidelines, calculation daily allowances per calendar day per number of hours per country. If you had a free meal, it needs to be deducted from allowances. Certain values around allowances need to be part of annual income statement (payroll processing).
Concur country template is more or less covering situations correctly. Recommendation is to run detailed tests with your German unit.
Legal rules prevent any Expense application from being user friendly. For more details, feel free to send PN.
