I’ve booked international flexes to London, Singapore, South America as long as within your normal range you’re fine...I don’t have to but I always let my manager know too..as long as you have your managers whine you then auditors can shove it

Get around auditors lol

It sounds worse than it is haha. People have advised me to charge it to the WBS. I’m not spending more than the avg cost of my flight home!

Shouldn't be a problem unless accenture policies are different than b4. just let the engagement lead know and pay the difference. I used to document the cost of a flight home when I did that in case the client asks.

Great thank you!

Sorry to poop on this, but for taxation purposes, flex trips are technically not considered business travel expenses. Anything other than travel to your home location should be purchased in CWT or elsewhere and charged in myTE as a flex trip up to the amount of your flex avg fare It has a tax liability that reflects on the next paycheck. Charging to a WBSe in CWT as a business trip is not the right procedure.

Not a problem. Don’t listen to these whistleblowers above. Do talk to your manager about it if you feel comfortable, never charge more than your back home flex budget. I don’t charge as flex travel (to avoid the taxes) and haven’t had problems. If you get caught, claim you didn’t know. Ignorance is bliss
