My personal phone bill comes out to $68 per month which includes $55 in text, call, and data and $13 in phone installment. Am I able to expense $60 or only $55?

Expense policy is pretty explicit that EY won’t pay for your phone itself, just the plan.

$55 since instrument cost isn’t covered.

Just seems like a lot of confusion with this. I definitely will be charging $55 as I'm not going to cry over $5, but I don't see why EY doesn't cover phone installments

$60

I’ve expensed my entire bill, including the installment plan and never had an issue the past 2+ years

Worst they can do is adjust it might as well try

Agree with EY7. Don’t ever fudge your expenses. $55 - EY doesn’t reimburse for your phone installment

26 and have only about 20k saved up (1.6 years working). Big expense coming is a wedding. My gfs parents want to spend close to 200K and I’ll be spending around 40k-50k as well. I want a smaller wedding- is it not my place to ask my future In laws to give that money to my wife instead? 200k would go a long way. I’m also expecting around 800k from my parents in about three years. My retirement goal is to have 100k passive income. Would a million dollars 3/4 years from now help me generate 40k ...
