KPMG folks - do you guys expense dry cleaning for the week? Is it standard to do so? A few of my coworkers expense theirs but I've been hesitant to do the same.

I'm sure your expense policy is very clear on what is permissible. I'd go by what that says.

Good call D1

The policy is likely 4 straight nights of travel. Be prepared for an audit months after reimbursement

It's the 4th night. And do it through hotel. They won't audit shit if you upload the appropriate support to SAP with your expenses.

Been charging to the client for 5 years man. But will double check. Thanks.

Yes. The policy is that you have to be somewhere 4 nights, which makes you eligible. Then, make sure to expense it to your practice, NOT your project. I usually drop it off my last day and pick it up the next week :)

Listen to KPMG2. He must be loved by his group. Don't ever this expenses like that on your groups p&l. It always is billable to the client. Read the policy.

@K1 Nope that's what the policy says. Check on Policy Center! I got a chargeback originally for charging to the client

I'll double check too 😰👩🏻

I expense dry cleaning every week for 7 years, always hitting the client code. It's in the policy with a week of travel like they said. It makes packing for the week so much easier to not worry about all the work clothes. I usually have 2 sets of work clothes at the dry cleaners and just pick them up each set every other week so I have a tiny bit more change in wardrobe than just the same 3 outfits being rotated.

At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.
