My COY practice $850 with car, without car claim as per receipt.

Phone allowance $150 for sales, fully subsidize for overseas trip but must buy local SIM card and capped at $50 twice a year for personal trip.

Current company

Transport allowance = no allowance, claim based on the taxi receipt for business related expense

Handphone = Company phone for Managerial level – full claim but only for business related expense, currently no allowance for staff level

Ex-company A

Transport allowance = $400 + toll + car park reimbursement with receipt

Handphone = $50 for Manager, $30 for staff – overseas calls is claimable as per charged in phone bill

Ex-company B

Transport allowance = $800 for Non-Sales, $1200 for Sales that cover ALL business related expense

Handphone = no allowance but reimbursement $50 for local call, overseas calls as per charged in phone bill
