Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 has adverse effects on about all industries, and long term effects are observed on tourism and transportation industries. The pandemic was declared over after a year, but emergence of new variants of virus led to expansion of lockdown around the world. Some countries have strict rules for travelling and public gatherings.

Corporate travel is impacted by all of these issues as well. During lockdown, the staff members worked from their homes, and they now choose to work remotely. Employees prefer virtual meetings over travelling to various cities and countries to attend meetings for two reasons: the digitalization of work and sense of personal wellbeing. Because they are proven to be cost-effective, several firms are also favoring these communication techniques.

Even though, less travelling during pandemic has not reduced the expenses. The expenses are now directed towards the work setups required to employees while working from home and the new technologies required for them to work efficiently. These are proving to be complex situation for organizations and finance departments, to decide whether these expenses can be claimed for deduction or not.
