Reimbursement of Mileage
Employee's family send them to & fro Changi Airport on their private car. Do your Company allow employee to claim reimburse based on mileage for both route?
REPLIES & COMMENTS
It’s the framework / structure for Company’s operational guidelines whereby staff is aware of what can and can’t be done, practise, claim, dress code, reporting hours, leave application, etc. It should be made available for all staff within the company. Yes, it’s like school standard ground rules whereby teachers and staff are aware and adhere to them.
HR dept does not want to “fight fire spot” when there’s a spark. Time, effort and consistency standards need to be there for staff to “know” a fair and equal across board code of practises. Of course, there’ll always be exceptional so Policies & Procedures has to be updated when Govt regulation affecting Company/staff.
Do you have in place transport claim procedure? It’s negative then your Company needs to address this issue whether a need to add on in your current Policies & Procedures concerning this issue. My view point on this issue is not claimable. Staff is given option to claim only taxi fare [standard] so why a fuss over using family’s own car?
The usual practice is taxi claim. I suppose if a company is prepared to entertain mileage claim, then it should be cheaper than the usual taxi fare, for one trip only (departing and returning), and not cover parking claims.
Our policy allows mileage claim for home-airport and airport-home. Alternatively the traveller could be claiming for taxi fares anyway.
We don't reimburse on such basis. The family wishes to send the staff off and this is their own private arrangement. We only reimburse staff based on taxi receipt claim.
