Mobile Phone Reimbursement
Our current practice on mobile reimbursement is employees who are authorised to use personal/company mobile phone for business purposes may claim reimbursement accordingly, with itemized mobile phone bill.
But lately, the reimbursement bill is very high and found very complex and tedious to identify usage for business purposes. Hence, we plan to have a capping on mobile phone usage and set as a policy.
Appreciate you can share what is your company practice on mobile phone benefits. Thank you.

We face the same challenge so our practice is that the manager has the discretion and so far, different tier signed for different employees (eg. Sales vs Customer Svc vs Finance staff). Then, we have an independent department to vet the claims for consistency. There were exception cases where managers only approved 20% of total claims or on an ad hor basis too.
Hope this helps.
We capped it at S$200 per month.
Our company mobile phone reimbursement capping as follow:
Managers: Max S$150 per month
Executive & Engineer: Max S$80 per month
Supervisors & Junior Staff: Max S$50 per month
We are from Japanese Contractor industry.
