Readying receipts l.jpg

Readying Receipts

Step 1: Sort the receipts by date

Step 2: Number the receipts

Multiple expense categories on one receipt should be numbered 1a, 1b, 1c etc. Example: Three days of lodging would be 1a, 1b and 1c and a meal or taxi charge would be 1d

All receipts should be cross referenced by number on the spreadsheet

Step 3: Receipts smaller in size than 8.5 in. by 11.0 in. should be taped, without overlap, on sheets of paper 8.5 in. by 11.0 in. in size. This is a requirement of the Microfilm Dept

Step 4: Receipts or any other relevant information only on the face of the page. Nothing on reverse

Conversion Calculation

Step 6: Oanda.com has an average rate calculator. Providing start and end dates will get you the mean rate for the specified period. Do not print daily rate sheets for each day of the travel period

Step 7: For trips exceeding one month, the average rate will need to be re-calculated for the next period to reflect appropriate rate changes

Step 8: Indicate on the spreadsheet, the conversion rates used

Step 9: Providing actual calculations for specific items, based on Oanda.com, saves processing time in Accounting Services as against merely providing currency rate used
