Always File Expense Reports: Tip-of-the-Day #217


I know some people who "don't bother" to submit an expense report after a business trip. They'll say things like "I'm too busy" or "I didn't spend enough to warrant submitting a report"... To that I have two things to say:

1. Are you ever too busy to get YOUR money back? If you are, consider hiring someone to submit your expense report on your behalf and pay them a percentage of whatever you're due back.

2. Even if you didn't spend "enough" to bother submitting a report this time - all those small trips will add up! A taxi ride here, a breakfast there - before you know it, you're overlooking hundreds of dollars that are rightfully yours!

I may be one of those people that "get on AP's nerves" because I'm so consistent about submitting my expense reports and babysitting them until the check is in my mailbox. But I'll tell you what, that money goes into my savings account where it grows and becomes a nice chunk of change. With the holidays around the corner, that's nothing to sneeze at!

Smart women don't ever "give" money away.
