No, as there is no allotment

Nope they don't

What allotment?

In federal you do, since its per diem based

Yea, federal and commercial handle expensing differently. Commercial you charge expenses directly, while federal you have a daily per down amount (amount depends on the city). So if you have a per diem you get the same flat amount, even if your actual costs are higher or lower.

Hi Fisher , Does EY GDS reimburse US CPA cost ? Line of services - Assurance.

Do you include all your assets when counting where you are at with your FI number or just the invested assets? My assets vary from cash, cash receivables, foreign real estate properties, precious metals, stocks/ETFs, foreign stocks, jewelries, and crypto. Also, it seems health insurance is a big expense post RE here in the US. This worries me.
