Etiquette for Expense Reports

In any case, ask for receipts for everything, so there is always a paper trail. Another good and downright practical tip to follow is to just spend as much as you would have spent if you were using your own money. And sometimes, you probably should just use your own money. For instance, filing a report to get reimbursed for $4.50 for a breakfast sandwich may reflect poorly on you, under certain circumstances.
