EY Frequent Travelers: How are you going to expense your cell phone + wifi hotspot bill come January? Any way around the $60 cap?

EY is also offering hotspots, but centralized through through our tech team. One of the communications they sent out with FAQs around the new policy talks about how you can request a hotspot through EY (I believe it's a Verizon device that they pay for directly). Or just call 1800EHELP and see where they point you. That option also requires PPED approval.

I have heard rumors that you could somehow bill additional costs to clients. But that would require approval from your engagement manager or EP.

Think the only way is PPEDD approval, so really only for incidentals

Pped approval is always required but I suspect will be granted for frequent travelers

What was the expense limit for staff prior to this $60 rule?

What's it for SC now? It was 95$ or something

If the internet is needed for a specific client project (i.e., they don't give wifi) that has been and will always be reimbursable if billed to the client with pped approval

Mobile broadband needed for specific project (client does not provide Internet service on-site). Approved by x

Damn it I'm a new hire and charged 60$/month for the past few months

Didn't know the changes would take into effect in jan

"For client work. PPED Approver = xxx"
