Day 5-TRACE Holiday Promo-Gift Giving

Local customs and laws on gift giving can vary greatly from country to country and can make it difficult for companies to determine the value of gifts that can be given to government officials. China made headlines this year as a discussion of the holiday treat, mooncakes, was featured in international media. To assist the compliance community in remaining festive and compliant during this holiday season, we are offering free copies of our China Gifts & Hospitality Guidelines, prepared by our partner law firm in China, K&L Gates LLP, and our recent Benchmarking Survey on Holiday Gift Giving to respondents of this offer.

The Resource Center for TRACE Corporate Members features a database of more than 130 country-specific Gifts & Hospitality Guidelines prepared by our trusted network of TRACE Partner Law Firms. Gifts & Hospitality Guidelines provide insight on local laws and customs surrounding gifts, travel and hospitality for government officials. These guidelines can be used in conjunction with our Gifts & Hospitality Tracking Software to manage and enforce gift giving policies.

About TRACE Gifts & Hospitality Tracking Software

TRACE provides its member companies with an easily manageable gifts, travel & hospitality tracking tool, enabling them to track key information about incoming and outgoing gifts, travel and hospitality given and received by their employees. The tool also allows companies to search the information entered and to identify patterns in the data that may raise a compliance red flag.

Day 3-TRACE Holiday Promo-TRAC

For Day 3 of our 10 Days of Giving, TRACE is offering you a promotional code to receive a 50% discount on your TRAC Number application. Your TRAC Number will remain valid for a one year period from the date of approval, at which point you will be asked to renew your account and pay the standard $80 fee.

TRAC is the only global online platform that captures, assesses and shares baseline due diligence information on organizations and individuals across the supply and marketing chain and assigns a universal ID number (TRAC Number) to all approved applicants. TRAC eliminates baseline due diligence screening costs for multinational companies while allowing TRAC holders to easily share their compliance information with all of their business partners.

How TRAC Works

Companies, partnerships, charities, and individuals are eligible to receive a TRAC number and to share their information with whomever they may designate. TRAC holders and companies are eligible to view another entity’s TRAC profiles at no cost, with the approval of the TRAC holder. To obtain a TRAC, an Authorized Representative, chosen by the company, fills out an initial questionnaire. This information is then processed by TRACE analysts, and typically within one business day, a unique 12 digit TRAC number is issued. The Authorized Representative remains in control of managing the information within a TRAC profile.
