PwC fish, stupid question. Can I expense an uber from a mandatory security training (client requirement) back to my office? What about a PwC meeting in a different office?

I would absolutely bill it to the client. If you were required to go somewhere new for the client, they pay for the transport.

Would you be able to justify/explain it to the client?

No - I get that it wouldn't be billable to the client but I'm trying to figure out expenses around PwC activities.

Why wouldn't you be able to bill it to the client?

I don't imagine I could bill transportation between two PwC meetings (ex coffee with a partner) to a client.

I don't know if you are elaborating sufficiently. If you are going to a client required function and then need to get to your next place whether hotel, office, etc you should be able to expense. Are you local? Is that where the stickiness is coming from?

Sorry! Yes, I'm local and training is local. I can take public transport between locations (training and office) but it is a huge time suck.

I'm being goofy and asking two questions in one. 1) Can I expense a local uber between PwC office and training location? 2) Can I expense a local uber between two different PwC offices to meet someone for coffee? Thanks for the help guys, I'm still trying to sort everything out.

1. I say yes*** 2. No. it's socializing. You can see if you can charge PD or connectivity code for this scenario. ***talk with your manager though and just get their buy off. There should be no reason a reasonable uber to a diff requires training site would not be able to be charged. If you were driving you would charge the mileage for the difference between the location and the distance you would normally drive to office. No differwnt.

Different*

First one you should be able to, right? Expense it to the training code? Second one is the gray area, what would you charge it to?

Sigh sorry for the poor grammar this cab ride is crazy bumpy

Talk to the director and get permission
