Employee Reimbursements

Meal Reimbursement

Employees can be reimbursed for business related meals. The policy for meal reimbursement is as follows:

  • Receipts must be provided for all meals. Only the actual cost of meals, including taxes and tips (except where limited by contract or grant) is reimbursable.

  • A reimbursement based on meal per diem is acceptable only for travel outside the United States. For further information see GAP 200.027, Expense Reports – General Guidelines and Procedures.

  • For business meetings that include meals, the employee needs to provide the agenda, names of attendees, place, and date of the meeting with the reimbursement request.

  • For business entertainment that includes meals, the employee needs to document the business purpose, names of attendees, place, and date of the meeting. Any alcohol purchases must be coded to G/L account code 69320.

Please refer to GAP 200.027, Expense Reports – General Guidelines and Procedures for additional information.
