If it’s small I think it’s more of a hassle but if it’s over $50 or $100 I would just shoot a very basic email. Covers your ass and odds are they won’t do anything

It was a lot easier to be honest when we could submit negative expenses.

Ethically you should fess up. Realistically if it’s a small amount I’d probably forget about it as soon as I told the vendor and end up pocketing it.

It’ll end up being about $40. I am thinking it makes up for some of the times I have no receipt for a small valid expense and just pay for it myself instead of bothering with expensing. So I shouldn’t feel guilty but do a little.

Just submit a negative expense to the project code, assuming you have that capability. That’s EY guidance.

Don’t get fire for $40. Put in a negative expense on your next report.

I saw a retail establishment fully decked out in Christmas decorations a few days ago. I, too, love the holiday season. But it's not the season yet!!

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
