Depends on when you get home if you reasonably have time to make dinner. Are you getting home at 6? No meal. Are you getting home at 9, meal. Project can make the call. But audit team makes final decision.

Isn’t this an IRS thing? Because it’s not an out of town meal it wouldn’t get the correct tax treatment for the firm hence the policy. Most places have this in their policies. I’m now more careful to eat before departure Thursdays.

Has this changed recently? I left deloitte about 6 months ago after being there 5 years and I always expensed Thursday night dinners and even Monday lunch when we travelled Monday nights.

Like any grey area with expenses, ask your damn project controller...
