Not so long ago Incidental expenditure (IE) was a simple claim for our expenses whilst away from home and it was recognised that receipts could not be provided for laundrette costs, papers, phone calls etc. What I dont understand now is that even when JPA does not ask for receipts for IE I have had a claim audited and been told I have to provide receipts for it!! Where, please is the justification for that. Will someone with some noddle as some seem to have in this forum please advise or have my Admin staff gone bonkers? The lads here feel that that they have been turned over by the system as we've been told that all IE claims back to May have to be supported fully by receipts or the money has to be collected by Platoon Commanders! That is not funny for most as the time spent away has been considerable and claims are already spent. Thanks.
