Allows for you to do the reimbursement and tax withholdings simultaneously through payroll.
2. Reimburse directly by LBS.
LBS processes claims and reimburses the employee directly allowing for more timely reimbursement and the employee receives the full amount. LBS provides you with reporting of amounts available and reimbursed to employees. This will allow you to report appropriate taxes.
