Accidentally paid a personal expense using my corporate AMEX (thanks Apple Pay and my fat fingers). Do I need to do anything besides just pay it off?

Omg you guys are insane. Just pay it. Don’t put it in the expense report. Jesus. You don’t need to pull that expense in

You can just mark personal in the buffer then pay it online...you don't have to call them. I accidentally do this all the time w Lyft and uber charges. I think a report does go to your higher ups somewhere but no one has ever said anything to me about it.

1. It will show on your expenses (not a problem at all) 2. Mark it personal there 3. Go to your amex account and make a payment 4. All set... no issues... done this before

Just pay it and make a notation on your expense report that it was for a personal item. You’re good.

@EY1 - I’m guessing this is different by firm. It comes through on your buffer so you have to mark it as personal in T&E otherwise it will show up forever. Once you mark it personal, you can pay it off through the Amex website (or call them if you haven’t set up access).

Nah just pay it. I charged personal things a few times by accident. One time I stayed at a Marriot on vacation and all my charges went to my AMEX because it was on file and I didn’t change it. I just paid it myself.

How do you pay a personal charge on your Amex?

Call AMEX customer service.

Lol Ya k thanks guys- just starting at the firm. Thanks PwC 1

Don't worry, as long as u arent seeking a reimbursement, it's fine

In gt&e transfer the charge to "Mark as a personal expense" then call Amex and pay.

I bought my wife's engagement ring with my corporate Amex and managed to survive.

They don’t care at all .. I’ve been told to use it if I want since the payment date cycle is longer than a normal credit card..

From what I remember, since PwC audits AMEX, that the firm pays all your expenses and any personal expenses have to be paid to PwC. My girlfriend (EY) and I just pay AMEX directly when this happens but PwC folk are in a unique situation.

^I also left Pdubs a few years ago so I don’t recall.

We pay Amex directly too.. just don’t forget to pay

It gets reported if you don’t

Thanks for all the help everyone!

Just delete that shit off your buffer and pay online through Amex’s portal. It’s the same thing as if you buy an OT lunch over the ceiling and have to pay the difference. Also, fuck PMLs that hammer on that dumbass limit.
