Remember that if the project has ended and a final bill issued to the client before you even get around to submitting expenses, you or your partner may be stuck with your expenses.

I had a midsize consultancy working for me when I was in industry issue me a final bill, then 5 *months* later send me a bill for $14K of some idiot junior resource’s expenses who was late submitting them. Unfortunately for them, my company was onto its next fiscal year and I couldn’t have paid them out of the correct budget if I had even wanted to, so they got stuck with it. You’re at risk of being that person.

No one will give you a bonus for doing admin tasks on time. But doing them late can blow up in your face, including in annual reviews if you caused a billing problem for your partner.

Good. It could still come back to bite you when bills are issued for these old expenses, but hopefully not. Just catch up on the remaining ones (*now*) and ensure that you are far more rigid about staying ahead of them in the future, set aside an hour every Friday perhaps on your calendar to do this and other administrative tasks.

I had a resource who had her Amex frozen due to lack of payment. This person did creative things trying to keep it hidden from project management including sleeping at the office.

Doing this has cost me ~$3500 out of my own pocket over the last 3 years. All I can say is even if you're barely keeping your head above water on your project, make time to do your expenses or you will get fucked sooner or later.

Of course if you don’t do them because you’re “too busy” and get dinged for it and/or cause a billing problem, all that hard work that made you “too busy” could be for naught. Plus it makes your time management skills look terrible.
